Book Description

"It’s common in the IT industry to hear of project disasters: overdue products, blown budget estimates, and dismal results. And the root cause of most of these commonplace disasters is the simple fact that people skilled in the technical aspects of a project are often not prepared to manage them.

Managing projects requires expert skill in managing budgets, people, and processes. It requires someone who is proficient in project management -- especially in the highly complex, project-driven IT industry. Information Systems Project Management gives you the powerful tips and tools you need to deliver results.

A definitive resource for IT professionals, the second edition of Information Systems Project Management uses clear language and real-world examples to guide you through each key step of understanding the project, defining it, planning it, and running it--and bringing it to completion. And the book shows you how to steer clear of pitfalls that can quickly derail your project, including scope changes that are not adequately defined, tracked, and managed; poor planning, especially planning that overlooks project activities; and an overabundance of technology tools, which often results in decreased productivity.

Plus, the second edition comes complete with all-new sections on how to: * manage projects when you’re also a team participant * define the proper objective * get your projects off to a good start * understand a variety of system-development life cycles * plan for a smooth project implementation * and complete a project cleanly, from capturing lessons learned to administrative closeout. The book is also packed with new checklists, worksheets, and action plans for dozens of ""what-if"" scenarios.

Whether your project entails implementing major packages, upgrading hardware, designing a technology architecture, or developing a systems strategic plan, Information Systems Project Management helps you successfully deliver your projects on time, on budget, and with desired results."
