    4. Identifying, Forecasting, and Comparing Costs and Benefits

    Costs and benefits of the proposed computer system must always be

    considered together, because they are interrelated and often interdependent.

    5. Activity Planning and Control

    Planning: select a system analysis team, assign members of the team to

    appropriate projects, estimate the time required to complete each task,

    and schedule the project.

    Control: using feedback to monitor the project, including comparing the

    plan for the project with its actual evolution.

  • The Causes of Failed Projects

    Failure to establish upper-management commitment to the project

    Lack of organizations commitment to the system development methodology

    Taking shortcuts through or around the system development methodology

    Poor expectations management

    Scope creep

    Feature creep

    Premature commitment to a fixed budget and schedule

    13

  • The Causes of Failed Projects (contd)

    Overoptimism

    Inadequate people management skills

    Failure to adapt to business change

    Insufficient resources

    Failure to manage the plan

    Most project managers were not educated or trained

    14

  • Success IS Projects

    The resulting information system is acceptable to the customer

    The system is delivered on time

    The system is delivered within budget

    The system development process had a minimal impact on ongoing business

    operations
