Sharepoint for Project Management (09 Edition)by Dux Sy
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Have you thought about using Microsoft SharePoint for project management? This powerful tool is ideal for projects, but most companies don't understand its power, and obtain it merely as a way to share documents or spreadsheets. This hands-on book demonstrates how SharePoint can help you organize and manage complex projects — a decidedly more productive use of this popular collaboration software. You know the challenges a project can bring: A key stakeholder wants a special report each week. Project team members are spread out through six different time zones. Nobody knows who has the latest version of important project documents. Burdensome reporting requirements rob your time and distract you from important tasks. SharePoint for Project Management teaches you how to apply common and practical project management concepts in SharePoint, and helps you build a Project Management Information System (PMIS), customized to your project, that can efficiently coordinate communication and collaboration among team members. With this book, you will: Learn key concepts about SharePoint and PMIS through a simple hands-on workshop Track a case study that simulates circumstances and processes that PMs typically experience while creating an effective SharePoint PMIS Add team members and other stakeholders to the PMIS with appropriately configured permissions Centralize project documents and keep track of document history with version control Automate project reporting mechanisms in SharePoint, and generate on demand status reports Integrate external tools such as Excel, Microsoft Project, PowerPoint, and Outlook Learn to archive a SharePoint PMIS
Each chapter includes hands-on activities that letyou practice what you learn. Most SharePoint books are either too introductory (for end-users), or too technical (for system administrators who implement it). By teaching you how to harness the organizational abilities of this powerful software, SharePoint for Project Management is just right.
