From the Preface:
PMOR and Tap-a-PM wrote:Managing repetitive work, process management, was the norm for centuries. Agriculture, manufacturing, retail, transportation, and other endeavors remained the same for years or decades. Those days are past. The world is moving much faster and all processes must change often. Changing a process is a project and it demands project management skills. No longer can a business manager, nurse, teacher, or any other worker assume that he or she can learn a routine and then repeat it for years. 

The mission of this textbook is two-fold:

- To provide students with project management skills they can apply in any chosen profession.
- To provide instructors with an open-licensed textbook they can freely copy, move into a learning management system; and modify to suit their teaching style, student demographics, available teaching time, and more.
