Large IT initiatives inherently contain business conditions, technology quirks, and participant and managerial agendas that make them exceedingly difficult to execute.

Complex IT Project Management: Sixteen Steps to Success reveals a project management process that the author has proven to be successful in many complex real-world projects. Each step is presented in its logical sequence, with the connections between management methods and project goals clearly defined. The author often refers to the successful tactics he employed, providing you with a strategy to overcome the challenges found in even the most intricate IT projects.

This book stands as the perfect tool for project managers at all levels of experience who plan to tackle a high-profile initiative. It also serves as a guide for project sponsors searching for the right manager, and for consultants recommending best practices for the workplace.
