I bought this book because the organization I work for is committed to stair-stepping their way from a vague knowledge of MS Project to an on-site Project Server (and TFS) 2013, and from there into the Cloud with Project Online and TFS Online. The writing is clear and easy to understand, and I appreciate the fact that it covers both the functional and technical aspects of moving to MS Project Server.If you or your organization is not familiar with MS Project, one of the most important aspects of implementing it is that you have to have it configured fairly close to perfect from the get-go. This is a technical hurdle, and it's good that Implementing and Administering Microsoft Project Server 2013 goes to the trouble of explaining some of the thought processes that you should follow as you're planning how your Project Server should be configured.But another very important and often-overlooked aspect of technology is the dual act of getting buy-in and getting people to use the tools. Project Server in particular isn't something that can just be mandated from on-high, rolled out, and people start using it. Gary Chefetz goes to the trouble to explain how to deal with the functional hurdle of, "How do I win people over and get them to understand the value of MS Project Server?" There is an entire chapter dedicated to how to manage the people side of getting MS Project Server into your organization.If you're considering MS Project Server, or it's a done deal and you have to figure out the best way to make it work for your organization, this is the book for you. It is somewhat technical at times (because it has to be), but well worth the effort to read.
Great book. I took he Microsoft Project Server 2013 Inside Out class, and this book covered much more then that class covered. If you deal with Project Server, and especially if you are brand new to Project server, I highly recommend this book.
Great book - has plenty of detail required to configure and manage Project Online. We bought it to set up and manage Office 365 Project Online, and with the insight provided, it has been very straightforward. Having someone that understands Project Server terminology makes reading the book more simple. Some of the terminology was hard to understand at the beginning, not because it is not properly explained, but because it is so much information to process.
If you want to cover it from nuts to bolts and get some good insight along the way, this is a great book. Don't expect to dive too deep, but deep enough to get you pointed in the right direction. These guys are not re-hashing Microsoft Help but add their practical knowledge about Project Server implementations interspersing the human and business challenges that are ususally much more challenging than the technical ones.
This really is in many ways the definitive book for Project Server 2013 administration and support. The index could be improved, but this is a non-issue if you purchase the Kindle edition.Bob Segrest, PMP, MCITP
The earlier versions of the Orange book have been my go to reference book for Project Server for me and my clients when implementing this product. This upgraded version, Implementating and Administrating MS Project Server 2013, continues to exhibit the reference quality that we have learned to find in the books produced by MS Project Experts. Another home run!!Ellen Lehnert, MS Project MVP
Very Informative. The best authority on Project Server Technology we have found over the past 5 years. Our first choice.
