Information Technology Project Management

Information Technology Project Management, Eighth Edition, is organized into three main sections, which provide a framework for project management, a detailed description of each project management knowledge area, and an appendix of practical information for applying project management. The first three chapters form the first section, which introduces the project management framework and sets the stage for the remaining chapters. Chapters 4 through 13 form the second section, which describes each of the project management knowledge areas—project integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resource, communications, risk, procurement, and stakeholder management—in the context of information technology projects. An entire chapter is dedicated to each knowledge area. Each of these chapters includes sections that map to their major processes as described in the PMBOK® Guide, Fifth Edition. For example, the chapter on project quality management includes sections on planning quality management, performing quality assurance, and controlling quality. Additional sections highlight other important concepts related to each knowledge area, such as Six Sigma, testing, maturity models, and using software to assist in project quality management. Each chapter also includes detailed examples of key project management tools and techniques as applied to information technology projects. For example, the chapter on project integration management includes samples of various project-selection techniques, such as net present value analyses, ROI calculations, payback analyses, and weighted scoring models. The project scope management chapter includes a sample project charter, a project scope statement, and several work breakdown structures for information technology projects. Appendix A forms the third section of the text, which provides practical information to help you learn how to use the most popular project management software available today. By following the detailed, step-by-step guide in Appendix A, which includes more than 60 screen illustrations, you will learn how to use Project 2013.
