Project Management & Information Technology
Applying Project Management Principles in IT
This course focuses on providing a balanced view of methods, tools, and techniques for managing systems-centric projects across the life cycle continuum from highly predictive life cycles to highly adaptive life cycles. As all organizations are dependent on data processing, electronic communication, and on the deployment of systems and software that drives these capabilities, the manager of information systems and technology projects is faced with the demand for projects¿ increased efficiencies, expediency, lower cost, and higher quality. In this course, students acquire an understanding of the framework and models for delivering a systems project with the management style required. The content and subject matter are aligned with the current edition of the Project Management Institute¿s (PMI) A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).
