Overview

There are more projects carried out in the information technology arena than all other business areas taken together. Regrettably, studies show that the great majority of IT projects experience some measure of failure. This course is geared toward reducing IT project failure by demonstrating how the application of good project management practice to the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) can help IT projects be delivered more effectively. The course presents standard project management insights into initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing-out projects. In addition to reviewing scheduling, budgeting, and resource allocation techniques, it focuses on bridging the business-technology gap.
