Digital Project Practice


This book provides hands-on insights and encourages readers to challenge existing methods and processes.

The management of digital projects requires professional and state-of-the-art methods, tools, and techniques. In this book, the authors pass on practical approaches from their experiences in the field.

The authors also critically acclaim existing methods and discuss their limitations. In particular, the book covers the following topics:

- Methods and Best Practices;

- Tools and Techniques;

- Soft Skills, Team Dynamics, and Human Resources.

Thirteen international subject matter experts contributed to this book. The objective is two-fold. First, the authors aim to further the discussion on business practices and methods. Second, the authors aim to stimulate the professional community. Senior professionals can benchmark their activities, while junior professionals can apply proven methods from this book.


"Digital Project Practice: Managing Innovation and Change is a work of non-fiction in the business and project management sub-genres, and it was edited by author and Dr. Tobias Endress. It contains the work of thirteen experts, including Aditya Chandak, Dr. Majid Dadgar, Ralf Dick, Elena Dinman, and Günter Jeschke, to name but a few. Focusing specifically on business practices and current methods, the book explores best practices which really do work and are considered as standard, but also new ideas that provide forward-thinking progress and dynamic growth, as well as equipping business practitioners at all levels with the tools to use them in their own daily lives.

Editor Dr. Tobias Endress brings together an excellent body of work in this insightful and invaluable guide to critical thinking around business practices. One of the things that readers will find most useful about the work is the fact that any level of professional can access it, whether it be to check their progress against expert opinion or to learn what the pros and cons of different approaches are before making the leap themselves. Although each author writes in a very different style, the work is edited to a high standard to ensure clarity and accessibility for all, and the topics are well organized to offer fresh perspectives and not repeat similar ideas too near to one another. Overall, I would consider Digital Project Practice: Managing Innovation and Change essential reading for anyone aspiring to work or currently working in business: an excellent collection of well-considered thoughts."
