IT Project Management Essentials Module 1/6: Introduction to IT Project Management
The successful delivery of information technology (IT) projects requires managers to adapt project management processes and tools to account for the specific characteristics of the IT environment.
Lesson 1: The value of IT project Management
Lesson 2: IT Project phases
Lesson 3: Project management tools
IT Project Management Essentials Module 2/6: Initiating and Planning
If you want your IT project to complete successfully, you need to get it off to a good start. During the early stages of a project – the initiating and planning phases – a project manager should clarify objectives and requirements and create a project plan that delineates, among other things, what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and how much it will likely cost.
Lesson 1: Initiating an IT project
Lesson 2: Developing a WBS for an IT project
Lesson 3: Schedule planning for an IT project
Lesson 4: Cost planning for an IT project
IT Project Management Essentials Module 3/6: Executing IT Projects
The execution phase in an IT project is when the work gets going and the plan is transformed into action and results. From the start of this phase, it's important for the project manager to establish regular communications with project stakeholders – management, the development team, sponsors, and others – to keep them informed on how the project is progressing.
Lesson 1: Maintaining a cohesive IT project Team
Lesson 2: Communicating during IT Project Execution
Lesson 3: Keeping Quality on Track during IT project Execution
IT Project Management Essentials Module 4/6: Monitoring and Controlling
The aim of project monitoring and control is to compare actual progress and performance against the project plan. An IT project manager must analyze any variances from the plan and identify what actions may need to be taken. If project managers don't monitor their projects on a regular basis, they won't know which tasks are behind schedule or over budget, or what the issues or risks are.
Lesson 1: Monitoring the progress of an IT project
Lesson 2: Analyzing variances in an IT project
Lesson 3: Controlling changes to IT projects
IT Project Management Essentials Module 5/6: Monitoring and Controlling
IT project managers deal with risks every day, including potential cost overruns, schedule delays, design constraints, hardware defects, and software bugs. Without a plan or process in place to address the possibility of unpredictable and unwanted loss during a project, managers may be dealing with risks reactively, rather than proactively. Potential trouble areas need to be identified early and dealt with quickly and appropriately so a project doesn't go over budget, miss deadlines, or negatively affect an organization's reputation.
Lesson 1: Identifying risks in IT projects
Lesson 2: Documenting risks for an IT project
Lesson 3: Analyzing risks in IT projects
Lesson 4: Developing risk response strategies for an IT project
IT Project Management Essentials Module 6/6: Testing Deliverables and Closing
Because it's a significant point in an IT project, the closing phase has its own set of processes and activities. When a project manager carries out those activities and processes, he or she can demonstrate that the project goal has been met and provide the team with a sense of accomplishment.
Lesson 1: Testing IT project deliverables
Lesson 2: Closing an IT project
Lesson 3: Setting up maintenance and support for IT projects
