Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Digital Project Practice: Managing Innovation and Change is a work of non-fiction in the business and project management sub-genres, and it was edited by author and Dr. Tobias Endress. It contains the work of thirteen experts, including Aditya Chandak, Dr. Majid Dadgar, Ralf Dick, Elena Dinman, and Günter Jeschke, to name but a few. Focusing specifically on business practices and current methods, the book explores best practices which really do work and are considered as standard, but also new ideas that provide forward-thinking progress and dynamic growth, as well as equipping business practitioners at all levels with the tools to use them in their own daily lives.

Editor Dr. Tobias Endress brings together an excellent body of work in this insightful and invaluable guide to critical thinking around business practices. One of the things that readers will find most useful about the work is the fact that any level of professional can access it, whether it be to check their progress against expert opinion or to learn what the pros and cons of different approaches are before making the leap themselves. Although each author writes in a very different style, the work is edited to a high standard to ensure clarity and accessibility for all, and the topics are well organized to offer fresh perspectives and not repeat similar ideas too near to one another. Overall, I would consider Digital Project Practice: Managing Innovation and Change essential reading for anyone aspiring to work or currently working in business: an excellent collection of well-considered thoughts.

I always learn from others and have all combined into one book, which was a brilliant way to expand my project management techniques.
