IT project management

Project Management involves developing a schedule for completion and adhering to it as closely as possible. Some minor changes are inevitable and so the schedule should have sufficient slack built-in. However, many projects are not completed as planned and several get cancelled. The purpose of this report is for you to research the projects in US or abroad that were planned during the last decade and either got delayed in completion, had a very large cost overrun or cancelled completely. These projects could be at the federal, state or local levels in US or a major project in a foreign country. It should be possible to find details on any such project that you write about on the web. Identify three such projects and briefly describe (in about 100 words) each project. Then look into one of these projects in detail and write a detailed report on the causes for the project not getting completed on time or within budge or getting cancelledt. Base your references that are related to this chosen project only. The project can be an IT or non-IT project.

Use the Report Template posted on Blackboard for report content. This template has the grading rubric built-in.

For writing this report you should check both print and online resources. You may use any information from newspapers, only to the extent that you can corroborate them from other reliable sources. Do not use newspaper references in the Report. Follow the guidelines in the syllabus for preparing the report. The report should be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on the due date to the SafeAssignment link on Blackboard. Several minutes after submission you should be able to see the originality Report in Blackboard under the column “Matching” for your submission. Include 5 to 7 references and list the reference details such as author(s), volume, page numbers, year of publication or web link, as the case may be. Do not collaborate with any other student in class in writing this report. I am looking for your analysis of the information that you present and so any item quoted should be brief. If the originality report shows a match of more than 20% then I will consider the report to be not your work and deduct points accordingly. If the originality report shows a match of 50% or more then I will consider the report to be plagiarized and will take appropriate actions, including assigning an F grade for the course and/or reporting the matter to the appropriate authorities as mentioned in the syllabus.
