Comments on the book

Adequate treatment of project feasibility is not there in book.
There needs to be more clarity regarding executing projects for outside clients by an organization dedicated to doing projects for clients and executing projects for internal users within an organization. The orientation of functional departments will be differnent in these two types of organizations and also funding patterns and related issues can be different.

  1. Try out this new web project management tool. I found that using the daily task list really helped my team focus on what they need to do, as it shows the most important tasks they need to work on each day. It’s also really easy understanding where each of your projects stands, which means that you don’t have to spend time digging through daily reports just to see what’s been done where.
