6 Top Project Management Books for Engineers and Manufacturers

LiquidPlanner

The book covers a wide array of industries, including medical and pharmaceutical, aerospace, manufacturing, and more. What sets it apart from other PM books is the focus on applying PM techniques and principles to the beginning stages of a project to influence the budget, scope, and timeline as early as possible. While engineers learn a lot of valuable skills in school, project management isn’t always one of them.
