Course Synopsis

Today’s IT projects present unique challenges to the project manager requiring co-ordination with many stakeholders and integration of various technological capabilities. In Managing IT Projects, you’ll discover critical success factors and hidden risks inherent in IT projects - and you’ll leave with an understanding of strategies and techniques developed in the field by experienced IT project managers for successfully managing IT projects.

The course addresses all areas of IT project management: hardware, software, systems integration, communications and human resources. It addresses the role of the project manager and the project team at each phase of the project life cycle; helping you gain the foundation, basic experience, techniques and tools to manage each stage of your project. You’ll learn techniques to determine customer requirements, set goals tied directly to stakeholder needs, get the most from your project management team, and utilise project management tools to get work done on time and within budget.

You’ll learn IT project management skills through hands-on exercises, interactive case studies, and relevant discussions with your peers and an experienced IT project management instructor. This approach allows you to practice new skills and ask questions as you assimilate a broad array of practical experiences that can immediately be applied when you return to the workplace.
