Book Description:

"With software and hardware development techniques improving constantly, it's surprising to learn that more than half of all technology projects overrun their schedules and budgets by 200 percent or more. "Computerworld" magazine recently reported several surveys showing that project failure is overwhelmingly traceable to poorly defined project organization, a lack of training, weak executive support, inconsistent methods and policies, and other readily addressed factors. "Managing Information Technology Projects" gives systems project managers field-proven tools and step-by-step methodologies to start and complete every project - hardware, software, or integration - within prescribed parameters. This title includes topics such as: organizing information technology project teams and developing project plans; risk management issues for IT projects; systems engineering; customer requirements and service; and project monitoring, control, closeout, and assessment."

Handbook of Distance Learning for Real-Time

And Asynchronous Information Technology Education
Handbook of Distance Learning for Real-Time Image
In information technology, unlike many other fields, the need to support the unique perspective of technologically advanced students and deliver technology-rich content presents unique challenges. Todays IT students need the ability to interact with their instructor in near-real time, interact with their peers and project team members, and access and manipulate technology tools in the pursuit of their educational objectives. The Handbook of Distance Learning for Real-Time and Asynchronous Information Technology Education delves deep into the construct of real-time, asynchronous education through information technology, pooling experiences from seasoned researchers and educators to detail their past successes and failures, discussing their techniques,...
