Computer Support for Successful Project Management

Book Description

In the recent past, computer programs have been used extensively to manage information technology (IT) projects. It has become almost mandatory for software development managers and students of information technology to learn how to use computer software to manage projects using computer software. Computer Support for Successful Project Management: Using MS Project 2016 with Information Technology Projects is a book intended to help IT management professionals and students, in using popular software MS-Project. Although there are many books on MS-Project, there are very few that cover the subject from the IT managers’ perspective. This book uses guided examples from the IT sector. Most of the relevant project management terminology, concepts, and key processes are discussed, based on the standards of the Project Management Institute. This book helps software development project managers to easily relate with the projects they execute in their day-to-day life. The author includes advanced topics like earned value analysis and multiple project management and discusses agile methodology as well as how MS-Project facilitates agile project management. Readers will learn how a tool like MS-Project can be used for processes related to risk and quality, in addition to meeting project objectives like scope, time, and cost. This book helps you to transform yourself from an IT professional to an IT project manager.
