ABSTRACT
The article informs that the British Computer Society (BCS) has published a guide for IT professionals seeking to develop their skills in project management. Project Management for IT-Related Projects complements a new foundation certificate in IS project management from the BCS's Information Systems Examination Board. In addition to outlining the principles of project management, the book covers project planning, risk management and communication between project stakeholders. These are all skills perceived in serious shortfall in the IT profession by several recent studies on IT project failure.
