IT/EDP project management

The successful introduction and continued development of IT systems is perhaps one of the most challenging management tasks. It relies on your ability to draw on enough internal capacities to meet the demands for adaptation and project management.

As a result, few IT projects are implemented on time and on budget. This has a lot to do with the disconnect that exists between what IT/EDP salespeople promise and what their technicians and programmers can actually deliver. Often, they have no idea about how to implement what was promised. In most cases, it is not even possible. The budget discussed and agreed upon is adhered to in almost NO cases. Budget overruns of 100% - in both costs and extra time spent – are the rule rather than the exception.

Most often, providers benefit from a simple legal and factual advantage: most IT jobs are commissioned on the basis of work being undertaken as opposed to service delivery. The contractor, therefore, has no specific duty of service, just of work.

Hence the danger of losing control, drowned by the minutiae of delivery details is imminent. Once the order has been placed and the first payment has been made, half way through the project at the latest, the balance in your client-supplier relationship starts to gradually shift. Suddenly you, the customer, are no longer “king”. Instead, you find that you have become dependent on your provider. Backing out half way through a project in which you have already invested a lot of money and internal resources as well as your credibility is only possible in the rarest of cases.
