Think about a project to which most people can relate: Home building. This example will help you understand the importance of IT project management.
How do you build a house and finish it on schedule with the right quality and price?
What does it take to build a house? Have you ever thought about that?
Building a house requires a lot of specialized skills and materials to come together in the right place at the right time.
Imagine the roofers showing up to put the roof on your new home and you have yet to lay the foundation. In such a scenario, you waste a lot of time and money: You probably will have to pay extra fees for contract violations.
You jeopardize the entire project by failing to plan properly. IT works the same way.
What happens if you build a house without the proper permits? You could lose your entire investment.
What happens when you don’t consider internal and external risks, such as the weather or labor issues?
Do you understand the risks and costs involved with choosing the wrong materials for your home’s environment? What happens if you don’t do the proper site preparation?
Have you thought about the repercussions of choosing a contracting team that takes shortcuts?
To build a house, you need all the regulatory approvals, all the right materials, all the right equipment, all the right teams, and all the right plans to come together in a precise order under a precise schedule.
That’s why most people trust the construction of their dream home to builders and their project managers. The professionals know how to manage home-building projects.
Most people who want a house, leave the planning to professionals.
IT projects work the same way.
Most businesses refuse to risk losing everything by taking the wrong approach to Information Technology.
Your business, if it’s like most, lacks the technical and planning expertise to efficiently and effectively execute IT software and infrastructure projects.
When a company tries to cut corners with a do-it-yourself approach, bad things happen:
- They buy inadequate, incompatible, or unnecessary equipment.
- They perform work in the wrong sequence.
- They neglect to prepare for contingencies.
- They cannot plan properly.
- They cause organizational disruptions as lost productivity and down time.
