Overview

Many successful project managers are beginning to utilize Microsoft SharePoint to drive their projects and operational initiatives. SharePoint Server provides teams with a centralized location for project information and facilitates collaboration between project team members. The intention of this book is to provide a hands-on case study that you can follow to create a complete project management information system (PMIS) using SharePoint Server 2010.

Each chapter is focused on a typical project management activity and demonstrates techniques that can be used to facilitate that activity. The book covers all project phases from managing requirements, implementation, testing and post production support. By the end of the book you’ll have a toolbox full of solutions and plenty of working examples. With these you’ll be able to build your own PMIS uniquely suited to your organization.

What you’ll learn

  • Create custom lists and content types
  • Handle incoming emails
  • Use web parts to customize your SharePoint portal
  • Implement key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Integrate Excel charting capability
  • Build a state machine workflow
  • Create custom forms using InfoPath
  • Develop a simple approach for prioritizing requirements
  • Provide tools for managing agile development (sprints, backlog, burn down, etc.)
  • Communicate development and testing metrics


Who this book is for

This book is intended primarily for project managers and IT professionals that would like to leverage Microsoft’s SharePoint technologies to help manage projects within their organization. Also, developers who are responsible for implementing a PMIS will find this book invaluable. Most of the projects presented in this book can be implemented without writing any code.
