CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT Book Excerpt:

The quest for Critical Success Factors “CSF” in project management in every industry is the aim of company and project manager around the world. This is primarily because of the cost attached to such large-scale projects, especially those financed by governmental entities, municipalities and provinces. Large-scale construction projects in particular have a critical impact on governmental budgets, economic growth, and ecology. As such, determining what critical success factors that directly contribute to cost reduction, timely delivery, improvements in quality of construction and positive impact on the environment can being mutually beneficial to all participants and stakeholders. The state of Oman like other GCC countries has a particular interest in determining such CSF in the post financial crises, where numerous landmark projects has been frozen due to financial constraints. Therefore, avoiding pitfalls in project management related factors could significantly impact the future role of British and Western construction companies in the Gulf and other parts of the world in post-Brexit U.K. The pressure on British companies is equally higher today than ever before to maximize the effectiveness in implementation of construction related projects internationally, to compete with other European and Chines construction firms. Innovation and cultural forces are found to play a significant role in cross-cultural project success. Such forces then can be viewed in relation to CSF will ultimately affect all participants and beneficiaries, stakeholders and the environment. Therefore, the attempt to explore varying CSF is more important to governments in developing economies, and private sectors involved in future construction projects, as much as it is important to Western firms attempting to compete and expand their market base in such critical part of the world and uncertain outlooks for the U.K. economy particularly.

Optimizing Project Management Book Excerpt:

SHELVING GUIDE: Project Management This hands-on guide is written for project professionals seeking to find an optimized way of performing project management. It provides answers to such critical questions as: Why should an organization apply project management? What is the value of project management in the broader context of an organization? Is project management as successful as some advocates suggested or is it a waste of time and resources because of the many extensive and bureaucratic processes? Which project management approach should our project team adopt: predictive or adaptive, waterfall or rolling water, extreme programming or Scrum? This book aims to provide an optimized view of project management by balancing and blending competing methodologies (e.g., traditional versus Agile), lengthy methodologies and broad principles, processes and practices, and the need to understand versus the need to apply. It includes project management templates, an integrated case study illustrating how to apply tools and concepts, and a glossary of key terms. Optimizing Project Management is for both aspiring and practicing project management professionals. It covers the core concepts, practices, and skills that are useful for developing new ideas, planning activities, implementing projects, and conducting planning and controlling of schedule, budget, and scope. The text is particularly useful for students, project professionals wanting to refresh their knowledge, and those pursuing project management certifications.

Information Systems Project Management Book Excerpt:

View IS project management as an art as well as a science. . . . There are a number of books out there on project management. What is different and specific about this book? There is a balance between socio-cultural and technical aspects and there is a balance between qualitative and quantitative aspects – project management is seen as both an art and a science. It provides an information systems orientation for project management: neither information technology oriented on the one side nor production and operations oriented on the other, but of application to both within an organizational-wide view. It stresses information systems as a whole, not just software development – no project is successful if only software aspects are considered. It gives a truly international view of the domain – examples and experiences from different parts of the world add richness as well as context to the material. Globalization has ensured that most projects take on an international dimension. The book provides a coherent explanation of the concerns of the project manager as the project develops through the project life cycle – it does not follow a 'kitchen sink approach'. Each chapter has the following consistent structure: introduction and outline, an exhibit, the main text with examples, chapter summary, exercises, discussion questions, interview with project manager and appendix – this structure provides coherence and consistency. The exhibit, interview and appendix contain real-world examples, experiences, case studies, discussion material, software descriptions and professional codes – these provide material for class discussion and group work. The material has been used on our courses in the United States, Europe and Australia, given to practitioners as well as students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) – it has been well tested as part of our own project managemenThe material in this text has been proven successful through repeated use in courses in the United States, Europe, and Australia, by practitioners as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students. Intended Audience This core text is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses such as Management Information Systems, Computer Information Systems, Information Systems, and Decision and Information Systems in the departments of information systems, information technology, and business.

Goal Directed Project Management Book Excerpt:

Goal Directed Project Management (GDPM) is a unique methodology that has been developed and refined by the authors over a period of more than 20 years. In this time, organizations all over the world have adopted it as a standard approach. The central focus of Goal Directed Project Management, this fourth edition of one of the most influential project management books, is to develop understanding, commitment and involvement while managing successful and lasting change.

Goal Directed Project Management gives detailed and practical guidance on how to plan, organise and control these PSO projects effectively, presenting methods and tools that will increase significantly the probability of project success. This newly updated fourth edition of Goal Directed Project Management addresses the financial control of projects in a new chapter, presenting a pragmatic approach - based on GDPM methods - to this aspect of project management. It includes guidelines to take you through setting up a project budget based on cost benefit analysis and shows how to report and control the running project using the milestone related budget.
