Description of "Project Management Battlefield"

What Does The Art of War has to do with Project Management?

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle. This famous quote from the 2,000 year old military classic, The Art of War, has been applied to business as much as warfare in modern times. PMBOK®, the Project Management Body of Knowledge, published by PMI®, is an international standard, recognized worldwide for enabling professionals and organizations to deliver value.

Not only does Project Management Battlefield clarify and enhance the processes and ideas found in PMBOK®, it also includes a free copy of Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.

Learn the Art of Project Management

  • Project managers need a warrior’s strategic thinking
  • Project managers must constantly remain vigilant against risks
  • Project managers must be able to lead the team like a general and instill discipline as a general does

Project Management Battlefield draws parallels between PMBOK® and The Art of War. It compares each knowledge area and processes propounded in PMBOK® with Sun Tzu’s strategic thinking that can be found in The Art of War. While This book is most useful to experienced project managers & senior executives. Project Management Battlefield will introduce The Art of War to younger project managers and team leaders too.

A contemporary project manager’s job has striking similarities to a military commander’s job. Rather than view the ancient text and the modern management framework as distinct guides, follow the author as he clearly explains how both frameworks actually support each other to support successful endeavors. This helps clarify both the ancient text and the contemporary project management body of knowledge.
