About the Author
Scott Daley has been updating Project In Depth since the Project 2010 edition. He has been working with Project and Project Server for over a decade as a consultant, a Microsoft employee, and an independent consultant. Scott believes that project management done well is a highly underrated discipline. This book was written with the intent to explain more than just what Project does or why it does it, and to go beyond the standard narratives surrounding Project. Scott has seen Project put to use managing many different kinds of projects, and hopes that this book will clarify some of the reasons why these efforts can succeed or fail.
