Hey everybody,
May I have some recommendations of books or forums that good for IT project management?
Like how to coordinate the work among the team members, how to synchronize the codes among them and the proper way to manage the release version of application...
Thanks for attention.....

Project Management: Best Practices for IT Professionals should be a safe bet.
When it comes to project management books, there is hardly one book that has it all. Consider some of these in addition:
Peopleware
Software Project Survival Guide
Radical Project Management
Rapid Development

Also to be considered:
The Mythical Man-Month, by Frederick P. Brooks, Jr.
Agile Software Development, by Alistair Cockburn
Take a look at the reviews at the Bunkhouse!


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

Another good one is:
Effective Project Management by Robert K. Wysocki, Rudd McGary
The third edition includes completely new material on adaptive and extreme project management.
I will soon publish a review of it in the bunkhouse. I'll let you know when it is up.

Browse Alistair Cockburn's site for books and papers. He emphasizes humans in software development.

That must be unusual. I'm still getting acclimatised to the "grunts" in trenches approach.
