Ely, England, 15 March 2012 – In today’s information age, characterised by information, knowledge, networking and connectivity, IT project management is fundamental to the survival of organisations. Successful IT project management can deliver cost savings and improve an organisation’s competitive positioning, but a failed project can leave an organisation at a strategic disadvantage to its competitors.
50 Top IT Project Management Challenges details just how projects can either fail or be successful, by outlining these problems faced by project managers in more detail and offering solutions to resolve them.
Effective IT project governance is about ensuring that complex IT projects deliver the value expected of them, rather than an expensive and embarrassing failure. Failure can be as a result of many influencing factors, and discussions on project management forums highlight many of the challenges facing a project manager. Unclear requirements and scope are well-trodden issues that can derail a project; other challenges are less obvious, but equally destructive.
50 Top IT Project Management Challenges, the latest book from IT Governance Publishing (ITGP), offers a focused and concise summary of 50 challenges facing today’s IT project manager, which will help readers deliver their next project on time, on budget and to specification. The book is an ideal reference for anyone involved in IT project management, from professional service organisations (PSO) and project management offices (PMO), through to active project managers and studying graduates.
Readers of this book will be better equipped to respond to key project management challenges, including building the team, project scope, politics, risk awareness and more, as the authors draw on their years of practical experience to explain such challenges and offer useful tips and advice on how to deal with them.
The authors, Premanand Doraiswamy and Premi Shiv, have over 20 years’ of experience between them working in IT project management with Fortune 500 companies in various industries, and experience in IT processes and management solutions. This experience has been condensed into 50 Top IT Project Management Challenges, making it the ideal reference for anyone involved in IT project management.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance comments, “IT projects have a history of overrunning deadlines and coming in over budget. This is no longer acceptable if organisations wish to survive and thrive in the competitive business environment. This book is a great place for anyone involved in IT project management to start, in gaining an understanding of the reasons for this tarnished history and how to overcome such foreseeable challenges. It will definitely help them on their journey to deliver their next project on time and on budget!’’
