I found this to be a solid read with strong content to support Project Management principles. The templates and guidelines are useful. The content also made to be relatable to the year in which it was published. It was easy to understand and follow. The author is very knowledgeable. One of the better textbook's I've had to use.
Pro: 1) An introductory reader on basic frameworks, concepts, and components of IT project management. 2) Much of the content is also applicable to generic project management. 3) Enriched with examples.Con: I was hoping for more examples that are specific to the IT industry, and the examples were not discussed in depth, i.e. mainly a short description of the problem, without going into details about the problem-solving process.
Interesting thing to study and learn about
This book is about information project management and contains 12 subject of project management. Such as scope, time, cost, human resource, risk, communication management. All subjects give basic information and some of samples. I think i will be read same kind of this book again.
Project Management is a tough subject to cover in book form and this is from a Project Manager who has read a fair number of PM related books.My review is short and sweet - there are better books out there. The author covers the material just fine but both Mulcahy and Heldman cover it better. Because this has IT in the title, IT PMs will pick it up. It's more expensive than other books and really doesn't improve on what those others say. Save the money and time and pass on this book.
Essential book for someone who want become a project manager, especially IT project manager. It contains a lot useful stuff to handle all kind of risks and problems, from internal to external, inside out.
This is more of a 3.75 rating. It was a nice book detail wise and the graphics were useful but I found myself wanting more interaction wise with the graphics. All in all a good book.
For those who want to apply for PMP and also want to have a better understanding of IT projects this book is your target.
This book was required reading for one of the project management courses I took between May and August this year, and I think it is very informative, well written, and I loved all the practical examples the author adds to make the subject more interesting. The structure is roughly the same as that of the "PM Bible", the "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)–Fifth Edition" (also required reading for the course), but is is far less dry. With its focus on information t...
I read this book as a textbook for the Educational Project Management course at the University of Florida. The textbook is the first book I have read on project management. The examples helped clarify the material. The important terms were in bold and the outline was easy to follow. I finished much of the book in a weekend.
...........Well it was helpful and it wasn't as painful to read as I feared. Still....*shudder*For anyone who will be reading this: it's actually a good text. Solid, to the point, thorough, and interesting. The author tries to keep things spicy with stories and real world examples that are both relevant and fascinating.
Really well thought out textbook. Extremely easy to follow, with links for additional information in the electronic format, which I read, that are also pertinent to project management. Great resource.
This is another textbook for class. It's a pretty good intro to project management, particularly IT project management. There are some helpful case studies. It does emphasize planning to the nth degree. Depending on the size of the projects you'll be doing, that may or may not be overkill.
A solid intro to the realm of IT Project Management. It's provided a solid framework from which I can understand all the universal basics of project management and really helped me jumpstart my career.
Information Technology Project Management by Kathy Schwalbe (2007)
Very informative. A very good introduction to project management.
An effective text book on IT project management. Dry, yes, but it covers the principals effectively.
Buy it used
for me as a 'project management newbie' this book gives me the right perspective to start and manage IT project management
Ugh. Dry. The only memorable thing about this book will be the constant onslaught of TLAs... (three letter acronyms.)
Belum habis baca. Buku IT project management yang perlu dibaca. Tak susah sebenarnya ...
This book was oddly helpful for something assigned to read during grad school! It demystified the PMBOK. I'll be using this to study for my nursing informatics board certification after graduation.
Cesky preklad priserny - lituji vyhozenych penez. Nastesti je to tak otrocky prelozene, ze se da z ceskeho prekladu odvodit puvodni text:)
I might as well add it to my list since everyone across the US seems to want to read it and they're all requesting it ILL...:)
A very good companion text to the PMBOK and specifically to describe IT project management.
I've no time to read and no money to buy this book .
Read for 590MGL. Helpful in explaining the basics of project Management.
It is a very good book
