Managing an IT project requires pragmatic management know-how, and knowledge of tools and techniques. For each of these topics, this seminar provides a step-by-step approach of the techniques and rules actually employed. Based on recognized good practices, it proposes effective responses to the main requirements of projects (controlling costs, time scales and quality) and positions the project leader's role in the company.
