Course Overview

It is an established fact that IT projects are more prone to failure than any other type of project. In fact using the traditional yardstick of Time, Cost and Quality virtually no IT projects can be considered totally successful. The main reason for this is that IT projects are inherently more difficult than non-IT projects. It is therefore particularly important for IT projects that they are correctly Initiated, Planned and Managed. This is the responsibility of Project Management. Throughout the course practical applications of the theory will be illustrated by examples and case studies from the presenter’s considerable experience of managing large, complex IT projects. The format of the seminar is very interactive with delegates encouraged to share their experiences.
