Overview

Although there are many books of methods and tools in different areas, few books actually give detailed tips and lessons on how to effectively set up and manage projects. Most books on project management devote all their space to specific methods. Breakthrough Technology Project Management, Second Edition provides tangible guidelines through examples and suggestions to help people participate in and manage projects more effectively. The authors' techniques and guidelines have been proven over the past 15 years in courses and counseling. This book will prove a valuable tool for those working in information systems, engineering, computer science, operations and production, and other environments involving project management.

The purpose of this book is to answer:

* How can the overall technology project management process be improved?

* Which systems projects should be given resources and approved for action?

* How can all systems and technology projects be better managed together?

* How can individual projects be better managed and more successful?

* What are specific guidelines for managing different types of projects?
The scope of the book answers:


* What projects should be approved?

* How do you formulate and start projects effectively?

* How do you manage single and multiple projects?

* How do you identify, analyze, and address specific project issues?

* How do you obtain results through communicating effectively with management, team members, staff, and vendors?
ABOUT THE AUTHORS: Bennet P. Lientz and Kathryn P. Rea have completed over 40 E-Business implementations and consulted with over 75 firms in E-Business in intranets, business-to-business, and business-to-consumer areas. They have turned around a number of failing E-Business efforts. They have consulted with startup firms and major high technology firms in planning, new product development, and rollout. They have taught E-Business in classes and seminars to over 1,700 people world wide. They have designed and implemented Internet, intranet, extranet, client-server, ERP systems, and data warehousing solutions. They have written over 30 books and 70 articles in E-Business, project management, process improvement, networking, system implementation, and related areas.

Audience: This book is best suited as supplemental reading for seasoned project managers who are looking for fresh ideas or a different approach that may not have occurred to them. Many of the concepts discussed can only be applied in specific circumstances, and judging when to use them takes some experience. Some have successfully used the book as an introductory text for new managers or as the basis of a technology development process.
