Real Web Project Management: Case Studies and Best Practices from the Trenches

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 2003 - Computers - 299 pages

Web project management is a relatively new and expanding profession. It has developed as people have discovered how different web site development is from traditional software projects. Web project managers are not only found in technology companies or dot coms. As companies of all sizes in all industries rush to integrate the web into their daily business operations, employees are being asked to manage web projects of all shapes and sizes. As veterans of the internet industry, the authors offer detailed solutions to managing web projects. They will present tools and real-world advice on both techniques for success as well as pitfalls to avoid. The numerous examples and case studies are based on their own success at iVillage.com as well as other web sites they have worked on. Rather than presenting a rigid methodology, the authors present a toolbox of tips, tricks, anecdotes, and case studies that will help the reader come up with a Web development methodology that works for him or her.
