Training Content DetailsIntroduction: Most if not all government agencies have, in one way or another, planned and implemented ICT based development projects, whichmay be small, medium or large in scale. ICT Projects are part of the bigger operational environment of the agency which embraced the aligned use of technology in service andbusiness delivery improvement. They relate technology use initiatives to programs as well as to the goals, objectives and budget allocation ofan organization. Once the ICT projects are completed, they could become part of the mainstream operations of the organization. In this sense,the outcomes of ICT project are destined to contribute to the performance expectations and mandate realization of the organization. For thisreason, an overarching framework and a methodology that put in context the existence and implementation of ICT projects are essential.Different kinds of framework, methodology, standards, and tools that underpin the process and deliverables of projects will be discussed inthis training. No need to re-invent the wheel. There is much to learn and to improve from the body of knowledge and repository of documentedpractices, and from openly shared best practice templates. There is no excuse for not making technology support the process delivery ofproject management. Business ready open standard software is freely available to meet the core service requirement of the projectmanagement office in all organization. Managing ICT projects is challenging. Project managers need to be concerned about all aspects of project justification, planning,capacity building, solution implementation, and delivery support. It covers goal setting, organization, resource and cost management, andhanding over the project outputs and deliverables to the project owners. The tasks of project managers become more complex when ICTprojects are implemented within the government regulatory and cultural constraints. Governments have overarching development goals andgovernment agencies have their own plans to address their service delivery goals and mandates. In addition, different stakeholders of ICTprojects and programs, including the critical public, tend to have high expectations. The training modules focus on mindsets, methodology,thinking tools, and software to direct ICT projects. The unique challenges of building the project case, planning the execution, managing the scope/time/cost, controlling the solutiondevelopment, mitigating the risks, documenting the process, insuring the quality deliverables, and communicating with stakeholders, arehighlighted in this training. The critical knowledge areas in ICT project management, as well as the different project management phases andthe processes involved in each phase, are also discussed. It includes provision of openly shared thinking tools and software to handle thecapturing, recording, analysis, and monitoring requirements of ICT project management. The training design brings to government leaders, managers and support people the knowledge references to build or to improve theleadership, management and technical mindsets and practices behind the e-Government ICT project’s performance, methodology,justification, planning, implementation, control, evaluation and support. It uses extensively the knowledge presented in the publishedUNAPCICT Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders: Module 7 – ICT Project Management in Theory and Practice. It makes referenceson other freely downloadable documents that talk about industry standards on project management. The freely shared publications andsoftware are meant to support the appropriate formation of all project management offices to support ICT projects in government.
