“What do you mean, I’m in charge of the project?”
Oh, if I had a nickel for everytime those words came out of my mouth! And, if I’d had this downloadable article from TechRepublic, Ten Things You Should Know About Managing IT Projects, I might have survived some of those “special” projects. It hits the highlights, but it’s a good place to start. At least, after reading the article, you’ll have a working knowledge of what you need to be worried about. God knows, no one is even going to tell you that much once they’ve stuck you with that project that no one else wanted!
Anyway, it’s at least enough to help you survive your first IT project. In theory.
