Reviews

When looking at a program or project that could be identified as 'large' in size, it would be advisable to consider a few factors that determine this size- such as effort, uncertainty and complexity involved in delivering the outcome (product, result or service). These factors would have an impact on an organisation's growth, size, budget and technology, as well as the project's geographical conditions, communication, current knowledge, and size of the application or product.

Drawing on research concerning the implementation of IT systems in the public sector, Program Management of Technology Endeavours covers the multifaceted challenges and global practices of large project management. It is well documented that, the larger the program or a project the harder it is to predict the behaviour of its system and performance and as projects get larger, the number of potential inter-relations and connections between the components (i.e., sub-projects) grow in a non-linear fashion. While current standards and guides are helpful, they lack practical insights into this management practice. By bringing together the best in program and project management into a single book, Program Management of Technology Endeavours intends to provide the required lateral thinking in this field of management excellence
