[PDF eBook eTextbook]
Publisher: Wiley; 5 edition (February 8, 2016)
The 5th Edition of Jack Marchewka’s Information Technology Project Management focuses on how to create measurable organizational value (MOV) through IT projects. The author uses the concept of MOV, combined with his own research, to create a solid foundation for making decisions throughout the project’s lifecycle.
The book’s integration of project management and IT concepts provides students with the tools and techniques they need to develop in this field.
The material in each chapter provides a logical flow in terms of the phases and processes required to plan and manage a project. The text begins with an introduction to project management and why IT projects are organizational investments. Once a decision to approve and fund a project is made, the project must be planned at a detailed level to determine the schedule and budget. The planning and subsequent execution of the project’s plan are supported by the project management and information technology bodies of knowledge.
