Preparing to Use Project Server

You'll be tempted, but don't skip this chapter. I know it sounds like a pun when talking about project management software, but planning the implementation of Project Server (a project) will be the single most important action that you can take to ensure a successful venture.

Implementing Project Server isn't only about hardware configurations and installing software. It's about planning for the needs of your organization so that you can correctly configure Project Server. It's about assessing where your organization is today and where it plans to go. It's about identifying the players, their needs, and their roles in the process. It's about figuring out what needs to be done, who has the skills and availability to do it, when it needs to be done, and what else depends on it getting done.

In this chapter, you review the process that you need to follow for your organization to accept the changes that using Project Server will bring and make the changing process successful and as painless as possible.
