2. 1. AGILITY ● Rigid planning and documentation are a thing of the past. ● Projects must be FLEXIBLE and reactive to problems swiftly as they arise. ● This can save a lot of money and resources. www.dsp.co.uk

3. 2. DELEGATION ● It is highly advisable in IT Project Management to delegate tasks. ● Trusting others to deliver frees up more time for management to examine key milestones of the project or take a step back to evaluate the overall performance of the project. www.dsp.co.uk

4. 3. EVOLUTION ● Management Techniques are constantly evolving to reflect the evolution in project technologies. ● Management must embrace these changes. ● Willingness to be flexible in how projects are approached and carried out can lead to greater results. www.dsp.co.uk

5. 4. PLANNING ● Arguably the most important aspect of IT Project Management ● A clearly defined and detailed plan is vital to any project ● Managers must also be able to make changes without slowing down or stalling the progress of the project ● Predicting problems and being flexible is key here www.dsp.co.uk

6. 5. DRIVE ● The success of a project can be measured by THREE variables: o Timeline o Budget o Resources Available ● The skill of effective project management is to complete it under the set budget, on time and without over-stretching resources. www.dsp.co.uk

7. 6. DELIVERABLES ● It is important for managers to set ACHIEVABLE goals to get the best out of his/her team. ● Stating DIRECTION and EXPECTATIONS to staff and co-workers that are CLEAR and PRE-AGREED is also vital. www.dsp.co.uk

8. 7. STEPS ● A step-by-step approach is important for working through these deliverable tasks ● Reaching one milestone and completing tasks one-by-one is less daunting than taking on many tasks in one go ● Management must keep staff and co-workers MOTIVATED by reviewing each step and approving them www.dsp.co.uk

9. 8. RISK ● There are Risks and Issues associated with every project. ● It is advisable to appoint a member of the team to assess risks and alleviate concerns as they arise. ● Documenting these risks is another important way of making sure a project can run smoothly. www.dsp.co.uk

10. 9. COMMUNICATION ● Open Communication is encouraged to run a project smoothly. ● It can save time and ensure that everybody is working towards the same goal. ● Makes sure everything gets completed. www.dsp.co.uk
