Project Management for Information Systems

Introduction

​​​​​​​Information systems projects are often faced with technical, process and people challenges, and the dismal success rates of information system projects are well known. Research has indicated that project succe​ss rate is positively influenced by organisational maturity, adherence to established project management principles, and strong project leadership by suitably qualified and experienced project managers. The Programme in Project Management for Information Systems (IS)exposes those owning, managing and taking leadership roles in projects with an information technology (IT) component to project management principles and techniques, as well as to the latest thinking and research on IS project management and the factors which influence success. In addition to this, the programme focuses on the discipline of project management by discussing and putting into context the various approaches to managing and executing projects, without alignment to any particular one of these approaches.
