Overview

With tight pressure to cut costs and yet implement technology quickly, IT project managers are under severe pressure to complete projects on time, on budget, and at the promised quality. Yet industry figures consistently show that 90 percent of major IT project initiatives fail to be completed both on time and on budget. This course delves into the unique challenges of managing IT projects, and offers a roadmap to success.
