Ce livre est la transition parfaite entre la saga Harry Potter et la trilogie des Magiciens. [...] En plus de tout ça, on trouve, en vrac : des références culturelles géniales, l'utilisation de la technologie par les sorciers, une guerre inter-espèces, la lutte contre le sexisme, des super-héros discrets, quelques insultes bien envoyées [...] un roman one-shot à lire absolument pour tous ceux qui aiment la magie, les histoires de grands ados (les héros sont majeurs) et, ok, les histoires d'amour un peu.
The author's practical experience in capacitybuilding in the areas of project management and procurement throughout the African continent has led him to take a simple and direct approach in preparing this book. The reader is taken step by step from the concept of a development project and its preparation cycle to its actual management, and is given many details related to the initiation, control and closure processes. The reader is then introduced to public concepts and the various cycles specific to goods, civil works or services. Procurement planning and monitoring, the various types of contracts and the intricacies of contract administration are also discussed. The international commerce terms (Incoterms) are presented in a separated appendix, and a detailed glossary is included.
