2009 -- August

Microsoft Project Conference -- Cut the *** -- how to quickly and successfully deploy Project Server

This session was given at the project conference in Pheonix, AZ.  If you want a view of how to deploy project server, then you could do worse than watch this.

"Successful Project Server deployments needn’t take an army of consultants. As a single consultant I’ve deployed Project Server 2003 and 2007 in many organisations with minimal resources. The key is to focus on the business requirements and configure project server accordingly, and importantly, work out how to correctly use of Project Professional. Without covering all the above bases, your installation is likely to fall short in one or more areas."
