Slow boring read, outdated material even as the latest release
Reviewed in the United States on December 10, 2018
This book has no real place in reference to IT project management and should not be used as such.
outdated material pushed on from previous editions with little coverage of agile development strategies.

This textbook is pretty much all about theory. The actual hands-on guide to Project Management software is offered on-line on companion website. The reason I have bought paperback textbook is that I don''t like to read from my PC and I expect to have the most important learning material on how to physically use software in it, not just theoretical part. Very dry and time-consuming reading. A way too expensive for provided content. Moreover, there are a few typos in the content (Chapter 4 , p. 173-174 presents duplicated paragraphs word by word as on page 175).

This book gives a good overview of the project management process in general with a focus on Information Technology projects. Though structured like a textbook (and obviously intended as one) the general reader, or someone studying for the PMP exam, could also benefit from the information in this text. Regardless, the book probably functions best as a course text (mostly due to the college textbook price). Each chapter includes definitions, discussion questions, exercises, and suggested readings. And a running case study that simulates real-world use of the principles introduced in each chapter pervades the book''s 12 chapters. These cases help bring the material to life and animate the sometimes inevitably dry subject matter of project management.

The structure of the book follows the nine Project Management Knowledge Areas introduced in Chapter 1: Management of Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Human Resources, Communications, Risk, and Procurement. Each knowledge area receives a detailed chapter of its own (which, in a few places, leads to repetition in the text). The emphasis here, understandably, remains on documentation of IT projects and meeting expectations of stakeholders or customers. Though each chapter briefly discusses the use of software tools for each Knowledge Area, and Appendix A introduces the basic functionality of Microsoft Project 2003.

Techies thinking of making the leap to Project Management will likely benefit most from the Cost and Comunication chapters (though all chapters contain useful information). Programmers and Architects don''t typically engage in financial analysis, but Project Managers absolutely must know these money-based terms, tools, and techniques to do their jobs. Not only that, communication often gets taken for granted in IT shops (i.e., the "we have e-mail, what more do we need?" perspective). The book tries to undo some of the bad communication habits that at times seem endemic to IT departments. Human Resources can also provide challenges for coders coming out of their caves, and the chapter on HR covers motivational theories and the basics of dealing with other people on a day-to-day basis (something else Project Managers definitely must excel at). By the end of the book, the message rings out: Project Managers do need some technical skills to succeed, but communication and people skills rise far above in importance for successful management of Information Technology Projects. The book does a good job of delivering that message as well as distinguishing Project Management as a unique skill for IT.

IT workers may or may not agree with the author''s somewhat opimistic outlook on outsourcing in chapter 12. More of the sunny side of outsourcing gets emphasized here. The subject remains controversial amongst many IT groups and companies, and the author doesn''t seem to give a complete picture of the issue. But some readers may welcome the idea that outsourcing isn''t a completely negative concept. Lastly, though the book''s title page says "2006", the author doesn''t talk about the recent growing trend of Project Management outsourcing for IT projects (some IT professionals may look upon Project Management as a shield against being outsourced; this may become less and less true if this trend grows; but it may not).

The book also includes 2 CDs. One includes a trial version of Microsoft Project 2003, and the other contains "Project Management Simulation Software". So it''s possible to put to practice (temporarily, at least) the principles learned in this book in software tools.

Overall, the book presents a good overview of IT Project Management. Some of the more advanced topics, such as Six Sigma and Monte Carlo Analysis, receive cursory treatment due to their massive scope and terminology load. But the book gives good introductions to even complex Project Management principles and practices, and will likely inspire readers to prepare for the PMP exam or to examine futher this unique area of Information Technology Management.

The textbook rental, Information Technology, Project Management, 9th edition by Schwalbe arrived on time. I did note water damage to the bottom right side of the book, but everything else was fine: no markings or tears & will be able to use this book fore class.
Again, I am satisfied with this rental but wanted to note the water damage to avoid any liability I would have upon its return.

Really disappointing
Reviewed in the United States on January 24, 2019
Very dry, full of made up management terminology. Reminds me of the typical management college courses - pompous and all encompassing, at the same time not giving any real value.
