Book: SharePoint 2010 for Project Management
Do you find yourself asking for more time whenever you work on a project? Do you
ever get the extra time you asked for? Well, if you’re like me, you rarely get the extra
time you need from your customers. This got me thinking about how I can buy more
time for my projects.
I decided to find out if I could gain more time by reducing inefficiencies within the
project team (which also includes myself). In a recent project, I monitored and analyzed
a few individuals for a week and was amazed at what I discovered.
If you were to analyze your team’s performance on a typical project, you’d be surprised how much time is wasted on non-productive tasks. This hands-on guide shows you how to work more efficiently by organizing and managing projects with SharePoint 2010. You’ll learn how to build a Project Management Information System (PMIS), customized to your project, that can effectively coordinate communication and collaboration among team members.
Written by a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) and Microsoft SharePoint MVP with 15 years of IT project management experience, each chapter includes step-by-step guides as well as workshops that help you practice what you learn.
