Demski, Jennifer
Campus Technology, v26 n2 p17-20 Oct 2012
When it comes to project management, the IT department is typically its own worst enemy. When project requests are pushed through the budgeting process by different departments, it's up to IT to make them all work. The staff is required to be "heroic" to get the project load done. People get to work over weekends and postpone their vacations. The staff is overloaded. To reduce the amount of time that staff spend in heroic mode, this article offers six tips for transparent, streamlined project management: (1) create an institution-wide partnership; (2) make participation painless; (3) reduce information clutter; (4) share progress throughout the process; (5) track available resources; and (6) encourage collaboration.
