This book targets students in all higher professional education courses. Its primary aim is to facilitate the successful completion of projects. For this reason it puts particular emphasis on the importance of careful preparation and strategic co-operation within the project team. The book consists of two parts: part one provides a description of a project-based approach to the work environment, an analysis of when such an approach is appropriate and an account of how to make projects work. Part two describes the practical tools and skills needed to tackle projects.
