I’ ve long been a believer that project teams can get a lot more out of SharePoint team sites if organizations decentralized SharePoint team site development and management to the team level. SharePoint 2010 for Project Management by Dux Raymond Sy is just such a book a must read for project managers and team leads who want to centralize their project information.
The book leads readers very methodically through building a Project Management Information System (PMIS) from SharePoint 2010 right out of the box without the need for third party add-ins much less a professional services agreement. The steps that Dux Raymond Sy lays out in the chapters of the book only require your IT/IS group to set you up with the appropriate roles and privileges and then following the steps in the book can take you to PMIS nirvana. He goes into enough detail where even first time and novice SharePoint users can get a PMIS up and running.
