In my organization, we have a sharepoint site for my department where we add to and manage a list (we'll call it List A) of all our currenet projects.

There is a manager who needs to aggregate project lists for all departments on a separate sharepoint site (including a list for my department, which on his site we'll call List B).

What is the best way to keep List B synchronized with List A?

Do users need to edit list B? – Ryan Erickson May 9 '13 at 21:49
Are the two sites in the same Site Collection? – Dave Wise May 9 '13 at 22:37

You can use Custom Schedule Job, Timer Job or PowerShell (also PowerShell script on CodePlex ) as described here.

There is also MSDN`s article on this. An article on Microsoft Sync Framework can be found there, as well.

Also, here is a Tutorial by Raymund Macaalay on how it can be done.
