Description:

There is continual and growing concern in the software industry regarding the number of projects that are challenged or worse still fail to meet budget, schedule or business objectives. Besides several well publicised failures of large IT projects there are many safety, mission and highly critical projects that are cancelled due to lack of correct project control. Recent industry reports confirm this number is increasing when it comes to large projects. This talk will demonstrate how highly critical projects can succeed when the correct controls are put in place. Using examples of specific projects and emerging trends in measurement, the presentation will describe the project management techniques necessary to achieve objectives.
