Introduction

This is a book about management, with emphasis on managing the design, development, and engineering of systems. It addresses two primary questions:

1. What does the Project Manager (PM) need to know?

2. What does the Chief Systems Engineer (CSE) need to know?

The focus is therefore on the essentials of what the PM and CSE must master in order to be successful in building various types of systems and managing project teams.

This chapter is largely introductory, dealing with the preliminary definitions of systems and projects, problems encountered in building systems, the systems approach, key managerial responsibilities, and organizational matters that significantly impact the way in which systems are planned, designed, and constructed.
