With software and hardware development techniques improving constantly, it’s surprising to learn that more than half of all technology projects overrun their schedules and budgets by 200 percent or more. Computerworld magazine recently reported several surveys showing that project failure is overwhelmingly traceable to poorly defined project organization, a lack of training, weak executive support, inconsistent methods and policies, and other readily addressed factors.

Managing Information Technology Projects gives systems project managers field-proven tools and step-by-step methodologies to start and complete every project—hardware, software, or integration—within prescribed parameters. Coverage includes:

  • Organizing information technology project teams and developing project plans
  • Risk management issues for IT projects
  • Systems engineering
  • Customer requirements and service
  • Project monitoring, control, closeout, and assessment
