Chapter 1 addresses the new standard for project integration management in the Project Management Institute Body of Knowledge revised in 2005, so it will be of direct interest to those Project Management Professionals (PMPs) who are doing refresher work as well as those preparing for the PMP certification. Chapters 2 and 3 are case studies and Chap. 4 is a sample manual on integration. Chapter 5 applies integration principles to the national challenge of rebuilding the city of New Orleans. Chapters 6 and 7 cover technical issues on project integration and Chap. 8 targets the organization itself. Chapter 9 treats risk as an integrating function and Chap. 10 is a strategic planning case with integration implications. Chapter 11 shows how to integrate projects using Microsoft project tools and operations, Chap. 12 discusses the systems necessary to build the capacity for integrated project management, and Chap. 13 summarized the essential points in the book. The appendices contain nine Powerpoint presentations, useful in delivering the messages of the book.
