EUC with HCI: Why It Matters


Here are five steps you can take to develop your project management structure, plus four keys to creating a sound budget estimate, and five tips for building the right team.

Effective project management is an essential career skill for any CIO. Whether it's overseeing an IT project for internal or external customers, you must demonstrate more than "tech skills."

You must oversee a wide variety of factors that determine a project's success or failure: budget, scope, deadlines - as well as the human resources that bring all project components together. The AMA Handbook of Project Management (Amacom/Available now) serves as a thorough, authoritative guide to project management, exploring the requirements of managing projects in terms of both day-to-day needs and long-term vision.

In this book from the American Management Association, editors Paul C. Dinsmore and Jeannette Cabanis-Brewin have compiled dozens of research reports from subject-matter experts within private industry and the academic world, examining topics such as cost estimates, quality management, team-building, strategic execution and scope/time/cost management.
