Book Description

Information is traveling faster and being shared by more individuals than ever before. Information Technology Project Management, REVISED Sixth Edition offers the "behind-the-scene" aspect of technology. Although project management has been an established field for many years, managing information technology requires ideas and information that go beyond standard project management. By weaving together theory and practice, this text presents an understandable, integrated view of the many concepts skills, tools, and techniques involved in project management. Because the project management field and the technology industry change rapidly, you cannot assume that what worked even five years ago is still the best approach today. This text provides up-to-date information on how good project management and effective use of software can help you manage projects, especially information technology projects. Information Technology Project Management, REVISED Sixth Edition, is still the only textbook to apply all nine project management knowledge areas: project integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resource, communications, risk, and procurement management. Also all five process groups: initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing to information technology projects. MS Project 2010 CD comes with the Revised 6e of Schwalbe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Studying for PMP Exam Feb. 20 2012
By isalai
Format:Paperback
Perfect as a companion for the PMBOK guide. Even though it is rated for IT projects, anyone can understand it as it is not written for "techies".

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Project Management book; I passed CAPM Nov. 3 2011
By --d.w. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ten years ago, I used Kathy Schwalbe's Information Technology Project Management, 2e to teach a college special topics course. It provided great coverage of the five process groups and nine knowledge areas of project management (as described in the PMBOK Guide).

Recently, I read Information Technology Project Management, 6e to prepare for renewing my CAPM certification. I was absolutely delighted to find the case studies, chapter endnotes, and other references to be up to date with current technology (this is not easy!). The accompanying web site has most of the information that was removed from intermediate editions and it has lots of new, interesting information for extra exploration. Even the best students will not exhaust this.

Today, I passed the CAPM with flying colors and with an hour to spare largely due to Schwalbe's excellent book.

If anything, Schalwbe is comprehensive. Her government experience, her consulting experience, and her teaching experience make this book what it is -- a practical presentation of project management [In the Acknowledgments she writes, "I have a passion for educating future leaders of the world ..." Do most teachers want to be evaluated on their student's performance? ] Both students and practitioners will benefit from it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Painful to Read Oct. 17 2013
By zymmetrix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I went back to school for another degree, and this book was required for a project management course. Although it does contain some good information, I found it agonizing to read. Most of it is common sense, and they repeat the same concepts over and over. As far as actual material, you could have cut the book down to 1/3 of its total length without sacrificing content. This may be due to my background in this field, but I found it very painful and repetitive.

1.0 out of 5 stars save money, use common sense April 9 2013
By wmonighe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was about 80% common sense, 10% fluff, and 10% helpful information. Lots of information is presented in list format ("Here are the six main processes...") as if that is supposed to make the material easier to remember, but instead it just makes it duller to read. This would have been a decent 100 page book, but it was just too repetitive and took too many roundabout ways to make a point that anyone who has ever worked in an office environment probably considers common sense anyway.
