Project management has become increasingly important in social work and social care. This volume provides essential information and tools tailored for managers in social work. As we have to transform and change our services in response to different expectations and environments, I consider project management to be a core skill, necessary for all managers to enable them to meet these challenges head on. -- Adi Cooper, Strategic Director of Adult Social Services and Housing, London Borough of Sutton
