  1. Managing the Information System Project Dr. Dania Bilal IS 582 Spring 2006

  2. Overview • Project management occurs throughout the SDLC • Activities • Project initiation • Project planning • Project execution • Project closedown

  3. Skills of a Project Manager • Leadership • Management • Customer relations • Problem solving • Conflict management • Team management • Risk and change management

  4. Project Initiation • Establish project team • Establish relationship with customer (user, in our case) • Establish project initiation plan • Establish management procedures • Establish project environment and workbook

  5. Planning the Project • Describe project scope, alternatives, and feasibility • Divide project into tasks and represent them in a Gantt chart • Establish resources and create a resource plan

  6. Planning the Project • Develop a preliminary schedule • Develop a communication plan • Define project standards and procedures

  7. Planning the Project • Identify and assess risks • Create a preliminary budget • Develop a statement of work • Set a baseline project plan

  8. Execute the Project • Put the baseline plan into action • Monitor project progress against plan • Manage changes to plan • Maintain project workbook • Communicate project status

  9. Project Close Down • Close down the project • Post review project with management and customer • Attend to problems • Close customer contract upon customer satisfaction

  10. Project Time Projection • Project schedule includes time duration for each task within the structure of all tasks • Calculation of expected time can be feasible by using PERT technique

  11. PERT Technique • Program Evaluation Review Technique • Help obtain time estimate for completing a task • Three variables used in PERT

  12. PERT Formula • Optimistic time (o) • Realistic time (r) • Pessimistic time (p)

  13. PERT Formula o + 4r + p ET= 6 (Since expected time should be closer to the realistic time, it is four times more than the optimistic and pessimistic time) See Valacich, chapter 2, p. 57.

  14. Class Activity • Use PERT formula to estimate the expected time (ET) for converting a collection of 5,000 records into MARC based on these criteria: • By doing recon in-house • By outsourcing recon
