Today's ITC projects present unique challenges to the project manager. They require coordination of many technical and non-technical stakeholders. Industry research shows that only approximately 30% of IT projects achieve their time, cost and specification goals. This statistic demonstrates an obvious need for IT professionals to supplement their traditional IT technical skills with high-value business and project delivery skills. These required skills must cover three critical domains; general business knowledge, project management tools, techniques and processes, and interpersonal skills.
This comprehensive and highly interactive course provides you with proven techniques, tools and processes for conducting successful IT projects. The course content draws upon current research as well as the extensive experience of the facilitator's involvement in managing projects. You'll discover critical success factors and hidden risks inherent in IT projects and you'll leave with an understanding of strategies and techniques developed in the field by experienced IT project managers for successfully managing IT projects. The course is offered as an intensive 5-day intervention but it can be compressed into 4 days by omitting some of the theory.
The course is presented as a balanced mixture of theory, discussion, and practical sessions. Practical work is done on a case study and suggested solutions are provided. A computer-based simulation is conducted which highlights the role of a PM during the Execution Phase and is used to reinforce the basic PM principles and concepts.
