June book: Managing Web Projects by Breandán Knowlton

A Practical Guide to Managing Web Projects by Breandán Knowlton

People who make websites sometimes say that their clients are unreasonable. People who pay for websites sometimes say that the professionals they hire don't understand business and can't stick to deadlines. A project manager is right in the middle - and a shrewd project manager can clear up misconceptions in both directions while inspiring everyone involved to work together creatively.

Veteran project manager Breandán Knowlton has been working on the web since its beginning, and has seen spectacular successes and disastrous failures along the way. In Managing Web Projects he provides advice, checklists and guidelines for each phase of your work on a typical web project, whether or not you have a formal background in project management. From initial inception through to final evaluation, this book is filled with practical ideas to help you make your next web project a positive experience for everyone.

    June's meetup was great! It was really nice to meet everyone and discuss UX with other interested professionals. Breandan's book is a helpful guide and it was really great of him to join us via Skype. Thanks for putting all of this together, Andrew!
