This project report examines management activities at Harbour Publishing associated with the publishing of a book. The core is made up of three parts, Chapter 2: A Sequence of Events, is a presentation of events associated with the publishing of the full colour, non-fiction book, Birds ofthe Raincoast. Chapter 3: Management of Events, is a discussion of both management practices employed, functional management and process management. Chapter 4: Behind Nine Problems, examines nine problems that I identified in the publishing process after an examination of the events described in Part I of this report. The conclusion, Chapter 5, offers comments on Harbour Publishing's management process and suggests one recommendation. The report will show the events that led to the creation of the book and offer suggestions for fine-tuning an existing management system. iii
