If readers have arrived here directly, they should first go back and read the Introduction in Part 1 of this paper.

The contents of this book are clearly focused on the project management community. For example, on the fly cover it states: "this easy-to-follow guide will revolutionize the way you view and practice project management." In the Preface it states:[23] "The changing economic climate and the increasingly competitive global environment are driving project managers to become more business oriented." And in Chapter 1:[24] "Given our premise that project managers are now more actively involved in the business, we must track the [project] assumptions the same way that we track budgets and schedules."
