Assistant Professor of Practice Art Thomas has contributed to a book on project management.
Thomas, who came to the School of Information Studies (iSchool) in 2001, teaches classes on project management and information resource management. He is also Director of the Upstate Health Research Network (UHRN), a consortium of institutions and expert researchers coordinated through Syracuse University that is making recommendations for health care reimbursement benchmarks.
His contribution, a tip on how to motivate a project team, appears in a chapter on managing project resources in a recently released book entitled Successful Project Management: Applying best practices and real-world techniques with Microsoft Project, by Bonnie Biafore.
“I’m teaching from experience, and this book presents from experience – it’s a good picture on what happens in project management,” said Thomas.
The case study he contributed, as well as other topics from the book, will be shared with his project management classes in the coming semester.
