The project is dead long live the project!: The way to successfully handover an IT project into production and how to avoid runaway projects Reviews
The book "The project is dead... long live the project" by Andreas von Grebmer deals with the management of the conclusion of IT projects.The first chapter gives an introduction to the scope of the book. It is followed by a chapter which investigates the processes and structure of the closure and hand-over of IT projects. The book provides checklists and templates for the use of the reader."The project is dead... long live the project" is a book not only for IT-project leaders, but also for consultants and project sponsors. It is interesting to see that the book looks at IT project management from the end of the project, when it is handed over to the customer ready for production. With the target of a project in focus, the books explains the means of project management and their application to achieve the goal. Together with many illustrations the book is an easy read, it gives practice-oriented information about project management. The authors' apporach is "hands-on" and does not confuse the reader with abstract, theoretical and academic descriptions of how to manage projects.The phase of the closure and hand-over of IT projects is as important as any other project phase and has to be considered from the begin of the project. And the book "The project is dead... long live the project" focuses nicely on these topics. However, it does not replace a standard work about project management in general. It is much more a valuable information source for project managers who want to ensure a smooth roll-out process from the beginning, when the project gets on it's tracks.
