1 Project Management for Computing Research Projects

2 Consider the following: Surely Project Management is a matter of common sense and a bit of organisation? “A project is like a well behaved child who misbehaves as soon as your back is turned”

3 Aim of a project The aim of the business is met The aim of the Specification is understood And more importantly that the Project is planned, thought out and properly controlled to give it every chance of success. Many projects that fail are due to lack of either no methodology or poor Project Management skills.
