Course Summary

Why Choose this Training Course?

In this age of Digital Transformation, IT project performance plays a massive role in enabling organization’s implement their strategic goals. Despite many advances in technology and development approaches, it is still hugely challenging to deliver IT solutions that satisfy stakeholder expectations in relation to delivery dates, costs and usefulness.

IT project management is notoriously difficult as initial proposed information systems solutions are subject to constant change as soon as users and other stakeholders realize additional needs that can be met “if only the system had this extra feature”. In many cases, solid predictive project management with rigorous change controls has been used to tackle this issue - sometimes successfully but not always! As the world becomes increasingly complex and IT demands become more diverse, another more agile project management approach has proven to be more effective in meeting stakeholders needs. This course explores “SCRUM” – the dominant agile project management framework and enables delegates to understand when and how to apply this approach rather than the traditional predictive approach when performing IT projects. This training course presents generally accepted practices (as outlined in the PMI® Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)) used in both predictive and agile project management approaches.

This training course will feature:

  • Predictive IT Project Management - the “Waterfall” approach
  • Agility - why IT projects have adopted agile approaches
  • Roles and responsibilities of IT project management
  • Core project management practices - scoping, scheduling, budgeting
  • Managing project quality, change, risk, communications, stakeholders
  • Practices to manage IT project initiation, planning, execution, control and closure
