How This Book Is Structured

The book consists of this introduction and ten chapters. The first chapter defines APF and puts it in context among project-management approaches. The next five chapters (Chapters 2 through 6) are each devoted to one of the five phases of the APF life cycle. Chapters 2 through 6 are all structured the same way. Each chapter begins with an overview of the phase. Its artifacts, processes, and deliverables are then discussed. The chapter ends with a section on one or more of the four case studies introduced below, as appropriate, a summary of the chapter, and several discussion questions for the academic market. Chapter 7 describes variations in the application of APF. Chapter 8 relates APF to Extreme Project Management approaches. Chapter 9 is a collection of frequently asked questions and answers. Chapter 10 takes a step back and positions APF in the context of the project-management landscape, with more of a future orientation.
