Formalizing Enterprise IT Project Management


This ECAR research bulletin discusses how formal enterprise IT project management can be applied to IT projects when the scope, cost, and external controls put them into a different league from typical internal IT projects. The bulletin describes how the rigor of the formal project management structure can become a model for planning, approval, review, and cost control in similar large IT projects.
