More About the Author

James Cadle has been involved in the management services field since 1975, when he joined London Transport as a trainee work study engineer. After three years of crawling about under buses with his stopwatch, he moved into clerical work improvement as an organisation and methods (O&M) analyst. Then, he transferred to the IT Department as a systems analyst and rose to be in charge of LRT's payrolls, pensions and personnel systems. When LRT's IT department was outsourced to CAP Group (later Sema Group and now Atos) in 1987, James took various roles: consultant, project manager, account manager and business manager.

In 1995, James set up his own consulting business with Debra Paul and this was absorbed into Assist Knowledge Development in 1999. AssistKD specialises in training and consultancy in the fields of business and systems analysis, consulting skills and project management and James has developed courses in all of these topics and presented them in many countries. He has also spoken frequently at conferences and meetings.

In 2013, James retired from full-time training, to give him more time to concentrate on course development and his passion for writing. He has now edited and co-written five books on his specialisms and three of these have now gone into several editions.

Away from the world of business analysis, James's interests include classical music, ski-ing - and Star Trek (though he draws the line at wearing pointy ears or Star Trek uniforms).

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Limp Blurb - Cadle & Yeates - Project Management for Information Systems 3E
The design and implementation of computer-based information systems is not a smooth process and, of the factors involved, none is more critical than the actual management of the process.
The third edition of Project Management for Information Systems contains the most current theory, practice and advice on the role of the project leader in managing the team, the individual and the task. Armed with these tools the reader will be able to plan every aspect of an IS project and ensure that it is implemented on time, within budget and to quality standards.
Practising project managers, systems analysts and students alike will benefit from practical advice, new ideas and case-based evidence of best and worst practice which will enhance their ability to implement project management theory. The integration of a variety of project management methodologies means that the reader will be able to apply the right method to the right situation.
Project Management for Information Systems 3rd Edition contains much new and updated information. A brand new case study based on real world projects runs throughout the book which clearly illustrates the concepts introduced.
Key topics covered include-
· managing and implementing change
· project planning, estimating and control
· leadership and the management of teams
· selling the project and managing the client
· risk and value management

Format: Paperback
Project Management for Information Systems is a core text for many degree courses in Information Systems. The book is concise, and follows through in a well written style that is easy to understand for the beginner and sufficiently in depth for the more advanced reader to benefit.
I particularly like the broad ranging references to a number of systems development methodologies, and the particular in depth discussions on the roles people assume and their interactions.
I'd recommend this book to any student studying a course in Project Management, and anyone undertaking a project of any size.

I used Cadle as accompanying literature to support my ISEB certificate in project management course notes. It was invaluable for providing a bigger picture than the methodology text books could do alone. The book provides summaries questions and a case study at the end of each chapter which allows evaluation of your understanding before proceeding further. Now used as a desk companion for quick reference purposes.

Format: Paperback
The book deals effectively with project management. It has everything that one needs to be managing projects; from estimation methods to team management. I used the book for my BCS Project Management module and I have no regrets for having bought the book as it helped me a lot. It is good for practising project managers as well as it deals with the issue of how to recruit your staff and how to monitor progress. Don't hesitate get it.
