It presents tools and techniques to successfully implement good ideas in the health and community services context. ; From the inception of a good idea, to convincing your supervisor to support your project, to achieving a successful outcome and capturing the lessons learnt, Project Management in Health and Community Services offers practical problem-solving strategies and provides a comprehensive guide to managing projects. It uses case studies and examples from the field to illustrate topics such as the project life cycle, project planning, execution and evaluation, risk management, change and effective teams. Project templates and a glossary of terms are new features in this edition. ; Written by authors with years of practical experience and underpinned by recent research, this is a valuable resource for anyone studying or working in health and community services. ; 'These authors bring a unique insight into the real world experience of 'getting good ideas to work', combined with a thorough knowledge of the research evidence. The practical easy-to-read style that made the first edition so approachable is still a pleasure to read.' - Jim Birch AM, Lead Partner, Health & Human Services Asia Pacific, Ernst & Young ; 'The authors provide solid advice and practical resources, many of which can be used straight off the page and on this basis alone the book is good value for money.
