Overview

Organizations depend on IT project managers to support overall business strategies with clear-cut benefits and advantages. As the bridge between the larger business strategy and the functional project level, project managers are expected to ensure key benefits such as reduced delivery costs, accelerated product-to-market speed, focus on client needs, and improved quality. To accomplish this, the successful IT project manager must have a complete command of a wide range of technologies, processes, techniques, skill sets, tools, and more.

Project Management Nation is the ultimate resource for IT project managers who need quick and easy access to the "what to do" and "how to do it" of project management. It leads readers step by step through each project phase and helps them master the technical, managerial, and leadership skills that every outstanding project manager needs.

Packed with authoritative advice, state-of-the-art tools, easy-to-use templates, and proven techniques, this get-it-done guide covers everything from project conception, analysis, and planning to execution, control, and implementation.
