This is a program for both IT and non-IT professionals, and focuses on project management strategies that enable your team to significantly increase its technology project success rates.
Every business is an IT business. Aligning your business strategy with your technology strategy is key to being successful. In this course we teach project management strategies that enable you to do just that.
First, we address the major challenges all IT projects can pose. Next, we explore the inherent complexities of technology projects, and provide techniques to dissect and deal with the complexities.
We cover agile principles and techniques in the context of tight budgets and evolving global business pressures. We focus on enabling better communication and coordination among global project development teams, business units, vendors and business owners. We ensure that you leave the two-day course with a comprehensive tool-kit for successfully aligning your business objectives with technology. We also present strategies for managing change—an essential feature of information technology projects.
Executive Sponsors, CIOs, Directors, Project Managers, Product Managers, Business Analysts and other leadership personnel will all find the course useful.
