Summary "Change is a normal part of working life in public services and anyone who is a manager or professional leader can expect to have to lead projects that contribute to service development and service improvement. Managing Projects in Health and Social Care is designed for anyone who is asked to manage a project but who lacks the experience or training to feel confident in this role. The book shows how to use project management techniques to ensure that your project will be successful. The key dimensions discussed are: budget; time; feasibility; planning / scheduling; implementation; and evaluation. The book includes many examples to show how people have used the techniques described in health and care settings. There are clear explanations of how and when to use each technique and consideration of the differences between large and complex projects and smaller, less complicated ones. Managing Projects in Health and Social Care is a practical handbook for anyone who has responsibility for projects. It is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to be sure that their project will make a useful contribution to improvement of health and care services." -- BOOK JACKET
