Poor-quality IT systems - Late delivery of IT systems - Cost overruns on IT systems development. Fifty years ago, in 1968 in Garmish Germany, these outcomes led to delegates at the first NATO conference in software engineering to coin the term “Software Crisis”. Despite advances in technology and development approaches, it is still hugely challenging to deliver IT systems that satisfy stakeholder expectations in relation to delivery dates, costs and usefulness.
IT project management is notoriously difficult due to the rapid increase in possible IT solutions leading to users and other stakeholders often only coming to realize that what they require is not what they initially requested! In many cases, solid predictive project management with rigorous change controls has been used to tackle this issue - sometimes successfully but not always! As the world becomes increasingly complex and IT demands become more diverse, another more agile project management approach has proven to be more effective in meeting stakeholders needs. This training course presents generally accepted practices (as outlined in the PMI® Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) used in both predictive and agile project management approaches.
By the end of the course, participants should be able to:
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This training course is targeted at both management and team members engaged in IT projects. The training course is designed to clearly explain formal project management approaches and enable delegates to recognize “warning signals” that indicate when IT projects are about to encounter issues. While delegates learn generally accepted practices widely used in predictive project management, they are also trained on how to refine predictive thinking in order to apply agile IT project management practices.
This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:
Day One: Nature of IT Projects
Day Two: Scope - IT Requirements
Day Three: Detailed Planning
Day Four: Managing Project Execution
Day Five: Controlling & Closing IT Projects
