Summary and Info
In the past, project success has been defined too narrowly as simply meeting time and cost constraints for a given scope of work. However, in order for an IT project to be completely successful that basic definition of success needs to be extended to include meeting return on investment expectations, product quality, stakeholder satisfaction, security, maintainability and adaptability. Also, the formal methods and tools of the project management discipline need to evolve to address the changes in modern software engineering and our high-tech global workplaces.With this broader and more appropriate definition of success, IT project management techniques and tools can be modernized, extended, and otherwise focused to be more effective. Project Management for Modern Information Systems describes and illustrates practices, procedures, methods, and tools for IT project management that address this extended definition of project success for modern times.
