Chapter 14. Mobilizing the Organization:... > Tactical e-Project Management

Tactical e-Project Management

Corporate e-business applications are quickly moving from drawing board to reality; however, that's only half the battle. A transition to e-business needs a tightly coordinated approach. Coordination flies in the face of traditional application execution, which is characterized by a number of groups working on various aspects of an issue but not talking. This approach is like building an airplane by having one group go off on its own to design the wings, another to build the landing gear, and still another to develop the fuselage, with no group ever communicating with the others. Would you fly in a plane built in such an ad hoc way?

e-Project management attempts to bring order to chaos. It is a formal methodology in which projects are planned and executed, using a systematic, repeatable, and scalable process. It is a series of techniques to help people efficiently manage projects, with a focus on specific results and deliverables, time, and resources.
