About PM4ID

Cover ArtProject Management for Instructional Designers (PM4ID) is – as the name suggests – a book about project management tailored specifically for instructional designers. This book is a revise / remix of a pre-existing, openly licensed project management textbook which was donated to the commons by a benefactor that desires to be attributed as Anonymous.

PM4ID includes many new features and improvements to the original book, including:

  • Alignment of book chapters with the PMBOK, which supports readers in preparing for the Project Management Professional certification,
  • A series of video cases of project managers working in the instructional design area, integrated into every chapter,
  • Multiple versions of the book, including HTML, PDF, ePub, Kindle, and a text-to-speech mp3 audio version of the book,
  • New examples written specifically for readers coming from the instructional design perspective,
  • and more.
