Summary

Project management is a topic that has and is still being excessively discussed. Project management dates back to the 19th century when Henry Gantt developed techniques for planning and controlling projects such as the widely used Gantt chart. The growth of modern project management in the later century came as a consequence of the necessity of structured manufacturing, transportation, and construction industries. At current, software developers in the information technology industry became concerned with the current techniques of project management under the assumption that they are predictable. Whereas, in reality, unforeseen changes tend to occur in almost every project executed to date. Inability to accommodate such changes leads to a waste of time, money, and resources. Hence, under the project management discipline, it continuously offers numerous theories, methods, and approaches, which raise a key question of: how do people manage the complexities of work in order to achieve the end result effectively and efficiently by applying strategic techniques using information technology as an enabler?

This book aims at showcasing the nuts and bolts of managing and implementing an IT project from the experiences and views of project managers. The book highlights captivating narratives of different IT projects being implemented in companies across the Middle East. It is targeted to educate executives, practitioners, and students on how IT project management is implemented in the 21st century.
