Project Management Statistics
• The U.S. spends $2.3 trillion on projects every year, an
amount equal to one-quarter of the nation’s gross
domestic product (GDP).
• The world as a whole spends nearly $10 trillion of its
$40.7 trillion gross product on projects of all kinds.
• More than sixteen million people regard project
management as their profession; on average, a project
manager earns more than $82,000 per year.*
*PMI, The PMI Project Management Fact Book, Second Edition, 2001
PMI (Project Management Institute )
5
More Information
on Project Management
• More than half a million new information technology
(IT) application development projects were initiated
during 2001, up from 300,000 in 2000.*
• Famous business authors and consultants are stressing
the importance of project management. As Tom Peters
writes in his book, Reinventing Work: the Project 50,
“To win today you must master the art of the project!”
*The Standish Group, “CHAOS 2001: A Recipe for Success”
6
• IT projects have a terrible track record
– A 1995 Standish Group study (CHAOS) found that
only 16.2% of IT projects were successful and over
31% were canceled before completion, costing over
$81 B in the U.S. alone
• The need for IT projects keeps increasing
– In 2000, there were 300,000 new IT projects
– In 2001, over 500,000 new IT projects were started
Motivation for Studying Information
Technology (IT) Project Management
7
Advantages of Using Formal Project
Management
• Better control of financial, physical, and human
resources
• Improved customer relations
• Shorter development times
• Lower costs
• Higher quality and increased reliability
• Higher profit margins
• Improved productivity
• Better internal coordination
• Higher worker morale
8
What Is a Project?
• A project is “a temporary endeavor undertaken
to accomplish a unique product or service”
(PMBOK® Guide 2000, p. 4)
• Attributes of projects
– unique purpose
– temporary
– require resources, often from various areas
– should have a primary sponsor and/or customer
– involve uncertainty
9
Samples of IT Projects
• Northwest Airlines developed a new reservation
system called ResNet (see case study on companion
Web site at www.course.com/mis/schwalbe)
• Many organizations upgrade hardware, software,
and networks via projects
• Organizations develop new software or enhance
existing systems to perform many business functions
• Note: “IT projects” refers to projects involving
hardware, software, and networks
10
The Triple Constraint
• Every project is constrained in different ways by its
– Scope goals: What is the project trying to accomplish?
– Time goals: How long should it take to complete?
– Cost goals: What should it cost?
• It is the project manager’s duty to balance these
three often competing goals
11
Figure 1-1. The Triple Constraint of
Project Management
12
The 2001 Standish Group Report Showed
Decided Improvement in Project Success
• Time overruns significantly decreased to
163% compared to 222%
• Cost overruns were down to 145%
compared to 189%
• Required features and functions were up to
67% compared to 61%
• 78,000 U.S. projects were successful
compared to 28,000
• 28% of IT projects succeeded compared to
16%
13
Why the Improvements?
The reasons for the increase in successful
projects vary.*
– The average cost of a project has been more than cut
in half.
– Better tools have been created to monitor and control
progress
– Better skilled project managers with better
management processes are being used.
*The Standish Group, "CHAOS 2001: A Recipe for
Success" (2001)
14
What is Project Management?
Project management is “the application of
knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to
project activities in order to meet project
requirements” (PMI*, Project Management Body
of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), 2000, p. 6)
*The Project Management Institute (PMI) is an international
professional society. Their web site is www.pmi.org.
15
Figure 1-2. Project Management
Framework
16
Project Stakeholders
• Stakeholders are the people involved in or
affected by project activities
• Stakeholders include
– the project sponsor and project team
– support staff
– customers
– users
– suppliers
– opponents to the project
17
9 Project Management Knowledge
Areas
• Knowledge areas describe the key competencies
that project managers must develop
– 4 core knowledge areas lead to specific project
objectives (scope, time, cost, and quality)
– 4 facilitating knowledge areas are the means through
which the project objectives are achieved (human
resources, communication, risk, and procurement
management)
– 1 knowledge area (project integration management)
affects and is affected by all of the other knowledge
areas
18
Project Management Tools and
Techniques
• Project management tools and techniques assist project
managers and their teams in various aspects of project
management
• Some specific ones include
– Project Charter, scope statement, and WBS (work breakdown
structure) (scope)
– Gantt charts, network diagrams, critical path analysis, critical
chain scheduling (time)
– Cost estimates and earned value management (cost)
– See Table 1-1 on p. 11 for many more
19
How Project Management Relates to
Other Disciplines
• Much of the knowledge needed to manage
projects is unique to the discipline of project
management
• Project mangers must also have knowledge and
experience in
– general management
– the application area of the project
20
History of Project Management
• Some people argue that building the Egyptian
pyramids was a project, as was building the
Great Wall of China
• Most people consider the Manhattan Project to
be the first project to use “modern” project
management
• This three-year, $2 billion (in 1946 dollars)
project had a separate project manager and a
technical manager
21
Sample Gantt Chart
The WBS is on the left, and each task’s start and finish date
are shown on the right using a calendar timescale. Early Gantt
Charts, first used in 1917, were drawn by hand.
22
Sample Network Diagram
Each box is a project task from the WBS. Arrows show dependencies
between tasks. The bolded tasks are on the critical path. If any tasks on the
critical path take longer than planned, the whole project will slip
unless something is done. Network diagrams were first used in 1958 on the
Navy Polaris project, before project management software was available.
23
Sample Enterprise Project Management
Tool
In recent years, organizations have been taking advantage of software
to help manage their projects throughout the enterprise.
24
The Project Management Profession
• The job of IT Project Manager is in the list of
the top ten most in demand IT skills
• Professional societies like the Project
Management Institute (PMI) have grown
tremendously
• Project management research and certification
programs continue to grow

Management Professional (PMP)
• A PMP has documented sufficient project
experience, agreed to follow a code of ethics,
and passed the PMP exam
• The number of people earning PMP certification
is increasing quickly
• PMI and other organizations are offering new
certification programs (see Appendix B)
28
Growth in PMP Certification, 1993-
2002
29
Ethics in Project Management
• Ethics is an important part of all
professions
• Project managers often face ethical
dilemmas
• In order to earn PMP certification,
applicants must agree to the PMP code of
professional conduct
30
Project Management Software
• By 2003, there were hundreds of different products to
assist in performing project management
• Three main categories of tools exist:
– Low-end tools: Handle single or smaller projects well, cost
under $200 per user
– Midrange tools: Handle multiple projects and users, cost
$200-500 per user, Project 2000 most popular
– High-end tools: Also called enterprise project management
software, often licensed on a per-user basis
• Project 2002 now includes a separate version for
enterprise project management (see Appendix A for
details on Project 2002)
31
You Can Apply Project Management to
Many Areas

  • 6. 6 • IT projects have a terrible track record – A 1995 Standish Group study (CHAOS) found that only 16.2% of IT projects were successful and over 31% were canceled before completion, costing over $81 B in the U.S. alone • The need for IT projects keeps increasing – In 2000, there were 300,000 new IT projects – In 2001, over 500,000 new IT projects were started Motivation for Studying Information Technology (IT) Project Management
  • 7. 7 Advantages of Using Formal Project Management • Better control of financial, physical, and human resources • Improved customer relations • Shorter development times • Lower costs • Higher quality and increased reliability • Higher profit margins • Improved productivity • Better internal coordination • Higher worker morale
  • 8. 8 What Is a Project? • A project is “a temporary endeavor undertaken to accomplish a unique product or service” (PMBOK® Guide 2000, p. 4) • Attributes of projects – unique purpose – temporary – require resources, often from various areas – should have a primary sponsor and/or customer – involve uncertainty
  • 9. 9 Samples of IT Projects • Northwest Airlines developed a new reservation system called ResNet (see case study on companion Web site at www.course.com/mis/schwalbe) • Many organizations upgrade hardware, software, and networks via projects • Organizations develop new software or enhance existing systems to perform many business functions • Note: “IT projects” refers to projects involving hardware, software, and networks
  • 10. 10 The Triple Constraint • Every project is constrained in different ways by its – Scope goals: What is the project trying to accomplish? – Time goals: How long should it take to complete? – Cost goals: What should it cost? • It is the project manager’s duty to balance these three often competing goals
  • 11. 11 Figure 1-1. The Triple Constraint of Project Management
  • 12. 12 The 2001 Standish Group Report Showed Decided Improvement in Project Success • Time overruns significantly decreased to 163% compared to 222% • Cost overruns were down to 145% compared to 189% • Required features and functions were up to 67% compared to 61% • 78,000 U.S. projects were successful compared to 28,000 • 28% of IT projects succeeded compared to 16%
  • 13. 13 Why the Improvements? The reasons for the increase in successful projects vary.* – The average cost of a project has been more than cut in half. – Better tools have been created to monitor and control progress – Better skilled project managers with better management processes are being used. *The Standish Group, "CHAOS 2001: A Recipe for Success" (2001)
  • 14. 14 What is Project Management?

  • 18. 18 Project Management Tools and Techniques • Project management tools and techniques assist project managers and their teams in various aspects of project management • Some specific ones include – Project Charter, scope statement, and WBS (work breakdown structure) (scope) – Gantt charts, network diagrams, critical path analysis, critical chain scheduling (time) – Cost estimates and earned value management (cost) – See Table 1-1 on p. 11 for many more
  • 19. 19 How Project Management Relates to Other Disciplines • Much of the knowledge needed to manage projects is unique to the discipline of project management • Project mangers must also have knowledge and experience in – general management – the application area of the project
  • 20. 20 History of Project Management • Some people argue that building the Egyptian pyramids was a project, as was building the Great Wall of China • Most people consider the Manhattan Project to be the first project to use “modern” project management • This three-year, $2 billion (in 1946 dollars) project had a separate project manager and a technical manager
  • 21. 21 Sample Gantt Chart The WBS is on the left, and each task’s start and finish date are shown on the right using a calendar timescale. Early Gantt Charts, first used in 1917, were drawn by hand.
  • 22. 22 Sample Network Diagram Each box is a project task from the WBS. Arrows show dependencies between tasks. The bolded tasks are on the critical path. If any tasks on the critical path take longer than planned, the whole project will slip unless something is done. Network diagrams were first used in 1958 on the Navy Polaris project, before project management software was available.
