Welcome to The Practicing IT Project Manager! This site was created as a resource for project managers, program managers, business analysts, and portfolio managers, including those who work in IT departments, those who work for IT solution vendors, and those who offer their services as consultants. Students are welcome, but the focus will be on information of value to practitioners of the craft of project management.
Please comment on the postings you read, and the postings of other readers. I ask only that you maintain a civil and professional demeanor.
