Context:
Leading organisations across sectors and geographic borders have been steadily embracing
project management as a means of controlling spending and improving project results.
These, and other desirable outcomes have been achieved through the application of project
management methodologies, standards, and maturity models, which has understandably
been embraced by many contemporary organisations in a variety of projects, including IT
projects.
Project managers of course are an integral part of delivering successful projects, and as
such, have many responsibilities to discharge throughout a project’s lifecycle.
Like all project managers, IT project managers need an understanding of project scheduling,
quality assurance, project management tools, and reporting in order to successfully manage
an IT project to meet its goals.
