About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of various models and practices of implementing project management in schools, and conceptualizes the processes of adaptation and development of project management curricula within the unique context of the contemporary school environment. By presenting the general theories and research on project management and adapting these theories to educational organizations and to this specific audience, the authors open a new and promising niche for teaching, research, and practice.
