Reviews and Testimonials

This book is really a useful source for ICT project managers or those studying the deployment of ICT. [...] Overall, this volume would be a good complimentary text book for a course on project management in an information technology focused program. It would also be a good reference for practitioners. [...] Those of us who have been studying technology and project management, and looking for a book for cases from the ICT sector, would also be interested in having this volume on their shelves.
