In Unmasking Project Management, Moraveck explores approaches to help managers implement successful information systems projects. Moraveck goes beyond traditional approaches to management of information systems (MIS) by introducing several types of principles, concepts, and research models that can be used for project management, and by presenting information about organizations in a new way.

Written from the perspective of an insider, Unmasking Project Management helps professionals in information technology (IT) and business identify successful approaches to MIS for their organizations and projects. Since IT managers and project managers face unique challenges, this book provides the knowledge to overcome these challenges by exploring business initiatives that drive changes, highlighting important project management essentials, examining the organization environment and real-world experiences of IT and project managers, reviewing MIS options and choices, and demonstrating how to get the emotional and peer support that managers need in order to complete their projects successfully.

In addition to being useful for IT and project managers, Unmasking Project Management is ideal for students and practitioners who need help making decisions about managing information systems.

Review

"Moraveck conveys a broad conceptual understanding and an overview of the fundamentals of project management and how these basic concepts and mechanisms may be applied in the real world. This book will be a significant value-add to information systems project managers who need to encourage innovations within the team, timely executions, and high quality project completions." - B. Raj Sinha, Professor, National University, USA

"Moraveck skillfully delineates best practices of information systems project management (ISPM). Her years of experience in public and private sectors are vividly sketched in this book through her insider views and ISPM wisdom. She highlights the value of risk assessment teams and offers insight and tips to mitigate risk, minimize delays, and manage unforeseen outcomes, using a fresh approach desperately needed at both the traditional and the emerging organization." - Moe Saouli, Adjunct Professor, Argosy University, USA

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading for managers that assume management of Information Systems projects May 10 2014
By Brandon C. Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Information Systems can be a financial drain, at best, and ruin, at worst for any organization. After the pencil and yellow pad were no longer able to track the financial, operational and administrative tasks of an organization; computerization is the popular answer to every problem an organization has. Unfortunately, too often the computerization can become the problem. Many excellent managers are given the task of management of these efforts with a successful management history but without the insight required to manage computerization. After awhile the project becomes the proverbial description of an elephant by three blind men. Professor Moraveck's book is a concise and complete primer and guidebook for organizational management and a tool to increase the possibility of successful computerization projects.
