In the health and community service industries, projects are increasingly used as a way to develop new services and achieve change in existing ones. But in this complex environment, project managers need to be determined, flexible and prepared to respond to emerging evidence and stakeholder demands. Project Management in Health and Community Services challenges the accepted wisdom of project management methods from other fields, and presents new approaches to successfully implementing good ideas in health and community service agencies. Until now, project workers have had to rely on books designed for architects, builders and IT administrators. This book is a comprehensive guide to the strategic and operational aspects of project management specifically for health and community services. From the inception of a good idea, to convincing your supervisor to support your project, to wrapping up a successful outcome and capturing the lessons learnt, it offers practical problem-solving strategies and provides a comprehensive guide to managing projects. Project Management in Health and Community Services uses international case studies and examples from the field to illustrate topics such as the project lifecycle, project planning, execution and evaluation, risk management, change and effective teams. 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.
