Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is written with the IT professional in mind. It provides a clear, concise system for managing IT projects, regardless of the size or complexity of the project. It avoids the jargon and complexity of traditional project management (PM) books. Instead, it provides a unique approach to IT project management, combining strategic business concepts (project ROI, strategic alignment, etc.) with the very practical, step-by-step instructions for developing and managing a successful IT project. Its short enough to be easily read and used but long enough to be comprehensive in the right places.

* Essential information on how to provide a clear, concise system for managing IT projects, regardless of the size or complexity of the project

* As IT jobs are outsourced, there is a growing demand for project managers to manage outsourced IT projects

* Companion Web site for the book provides dozens of working templates to help readers manage their own IT projects
