Optimized Project Management 101, A Structured IT Project Management Methodology for Results & Success

January 26, 2017

ThirdWave has been retained to provide formal IT Project Management training to the City’s IT department. The course reflects the project management Institute’s PMBOK methodology. The course is called ‘optimized’ because it places an acute focus on pragmatic techniques for effectively managing IT projects. The training covers generally accepted project management best practices, processes, and provides skills and techniques leading to predictable and repeatable project outcomes, results and success.

The City and the IT department will realize a number of benefits from the training. Project management best practices will produce consistent Project Management standards, increased likelihood of successful IT projects, cost avoidance of failed projects, delays and rework costs, satisfied end users, and optimized staff resources though proper planning and management of IT initiatives.
