Project Management

IT project management includes overseeing projects for software development, hardware installations, network upgrades, cloud computing, virtualization rollouts, business analytics, data management projects and any implementing IT services. In addition to the normal problems that can cause a project to fail, factors that can negatively affect the success of an IT project include advances in technology during the project’s execution, infrastructure changes that impact security or data management and unknown dependencices among hardware, software, network infrastructure or data.

The early stages of any project management within the world of IT involve assessing, prioritizing, and planning potential IT projects. This includes determining the scope of work and available resources, assigning resources, and setting expectations for project milestones. Some of the failure rates for large IT projects range anywhere from 35 and 80 percent. Since each project management methodology has its advantages, we implement more of a hybrid approach with our teams, using the methodology that makes the most sense for the specific IT project being considered.

PMs usually operate in a temporary organizational form, and projects typically do not operate under ideal circumstances. Project Management can help to motivate people, under time pressure, with uncertain conditions towards an uncertain goal. Project Managers motivate their project team to keep moving towards the next goal. With ever changing conditions, resources need to be reorganized and re-prioritized. Decisions are to be made continuously. The organization is the stakeholder in the project being managed, and an outside view can provide the calm to the inevitable storm.
