The most comprehensive and easy to read PM book ever! 3 Mar. 2005
By Jules - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love this book!! I have read quite a few PM books over the past few years. This is the first one that I have really been able to use to quickly increase my knowledge and understanding of project management. I use this book on a day to day basis to help me in my job. The document templates are outstanding. What a difference it has made to my project to be able to use these and feel confident that I have all my bases covered. A lot of the documents I had never created before as I was not really sure what information needed to be in them. These templates are great and make it really easy to ensure that your project is fully documented. I found other PM books lacking in information on "how" to implement the processes needed. Most them just tell you what you need to do and often do not cover the whole process from start to finish and leave some areas completely unaccounted for. This book however, tells me what needs to be done and then goes on to explain in detail how to do it. The book leaves no stone unturned. Every single step in the process is covered including the people aspect of project management. The examples are great - they have helped me to understand where I have been going wrong and with just a few adjustments to my management style, my projects are running more smoothly and my team is much happier! What I especially liked about this book is that the authors understand that no matter how well you plan, things will always go wrong. They give practical advice on how to track the health of your project and how to plan for the unplanned. The authors also understand that you need to know about other areas of the business in order to effectively manage and coordinate with other departments. The information on QA was invaluable to me. I had never fully understood the difference between white box and black box testing nor really understood what the QA manager meant when he talked about regression testing and acceptance testing. It was all just jargon to me. The concise and informative overview of how QA works has enabled me to have intelligent dialogue with the QA manager about testing without feeling intimidated or confused. I wish this book had been available when I started my first PM job - I would have done a much better job!! Since reading this book, I feel myself changing from a reactive project manager into a proactive project manager and it is truly amazing how much difference that makes. I feel calmer and less stressed about my project and don't panic when things go wrong. This book is very easy to read and has just the right amount of humor and real world examples to keep it really interesting. It is must have for any Technology Project Manager whether just starting out or a more seasoned PM like myself.

The best roadmap ever created for technology projects! 9 Mar. 2005
By Dora L. Wood - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have always wondered about how to effectively manage an IT project. I have experience on managing projects but as I needed to expand my horizons in regards to IT projects, this book allowed me to become very familiar with this process.

I particularly liked the section on how to be an effective leader of a project. Very insightful and useful book! I recommend it to anyone who has to lead a technology related project!

Great book for Beginners 28 Feb. 2007
By Patsy R. Gillispie - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have taken on a new task as a Program Manager so this book was excellent. It really laid out the processes and what you need to be an effective Project Manager. If you're new to technical PM, this is great. If you've got the experience, this book may not be for you. The CD that came with the book is full of great templates! The author made some very interesting points and is just a good book all around.

Good book on PM in Technology 29 April 2007
By Larkin Moly - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you work on technology projects, you will pick up some good tips from this book. You will also learn a few general pronciples of project management. However, do not expect it to be compatible with the PMI Standard for project management.

Fundamentals of Technology Project Management 4 Jan. 2007
By Julia Gubina - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's a great book for a project manager. It both helpful for a beginners in the project handling and management, and for the experienced project leaders. For beginners - it is the guidelines how to organize and coordinate the project 'right the first time'. For experienced leaders it's a chance to review your organizational skills and practice and have more 'scientific' approach to projects currently running.
