More About the Author

I have many years of technical experience which I gained after graduating from a community college with an associate degree, (diploma), in 1985. Since then, I have worked as a programmer, system operator, business analyst, database administrator, web administrator, project manager and more.

Through my career, I have used over 30 technical programming languages, databases and operating systems. This spans machine language, assembly, "C", Fortran, Java, HTML, SQL and more.

During my time as a project manager, I came to realize that many projects are not executed well. Many people know that too. Large projects are typically over budget, late or both. Some are vastly over budget or incredibly late. As a project manager who tries to work well, I decided to improve my own project abilities. I studied and augmented my informal knowledge with actual certification. I studied for, and passed, the Project Management Professional, (PMP), exam offered by the Project Management Institute.

My contribution to improved project management has been in the area of lessons learned. In my opinion, this is the worst aspect of formal project management today. Projects are completed with little fanfare or documentation. Anything learned in the effort is likely lost. As I have been told, if it isn't written down, (and easily retrieved in the future), it is lost. This is a big problem, one that agencies often don't know they have. As an example, imagine a project which encountered a major implementation obstacle. To overcome it, they have to buy a certain software utility. It works and the project completes. Later, the agency implements a new project which runs into the same problem. The team is different so they have no knowledge of the earlier fix to the problem. They buy the exact same software utility and fix the problem. That represents a direct cost of not saving the lessons from the first project in a system that can be useful in the future.

One way that organizations can start to improve their project documentation is to use a real tracking application. ProjectLibre is a great choice, in my opinion. It accepts task lists which can easily be assigned as work for team members. The program is free to use so any agency can have it installed and used for projects of any size. When the available features such as project and task notes are used, future project managers can review important execution aspects and gain knowledge which they can bring to their projects. This can easily save money for the agency.

I was frustrated to have to pay for a resource to understand and utilize Project Libre, which I was very excited to begin using, but this book was extremely helpful and well worth the price.

It lacks detailed important information.
It is a starter's users guide.
It is not what I, or any medium ProjectLibre user, expect from a book named as "User Guide Reference Manual"
Sorry.
Regards.

This book contains useful information, but for a so-called reference manual, I would like to see it go into much more depth. However, given the sparse documentation currently available for ProjectLibre, I think this book is worth purchasing for those trying to learn ProjectLibre. I would like to see a more comprehensive reference manual and also an updated book like Lisa Bucki's "OpenProj". This book is still useful for ProjectLibre since it is a fork of OpenProj. However, some of the screens and features have changed.

Ok for an introduction although i felt most the content could be learned through experimenting with the software. I had hoped to learn more about tracking and reporting projects using baselines and balancing resource assignments but these were summed up as being outside the scope of this publication. A bit disappointing as far as I'm concerned.

The book is not a refence guide, it is just a basic guide. I think i already knew all the information before, using the software with the availyble documentation.
The only thing i learned was the use of a lag modifier.
