Methods of IT Project Management, Fourth Edition
Designed for graduate, advanced undergraduate, and practitioner project management courses with an information technology focus, Methods of IT Project Management is designed around the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), incorporating material from the latest seventh edition while still maintaining the book’s process approach. The text provides students with all the concepts, techniques, artifacts, and methods found in the leading project management reference books and modern development methodologies (agile, hybrid, and traditional), while also conveying practical knowledge that can immediately be applied in real-world settings. Unlike other books in this area, the material is organized according to the sequence of a generic project life cycle―from project selection to initiation, planning, execution, control, and iteration or project closeout. Following this life-cycle approach, as opposed to covering the material by knowledge area or project performance domain, allows new learners to simultaneously study project management concepts and methods as they develop skills they can use immediately during and upon completion of the course. The text’s structure also allows different programs to use the book during real-world student projects.
