Net Tuesday Vancouver Event Report: IT Project Management for Nonprofits

elijah's picture

Here's a terrifying statistic: 70% of Information Technology projects fail! Studies consistently show that even well-resourced organizations have a better-than-even chance of project failure. Reasons include "fuzzy business objectives", "out-of-sync stakeholders" and "excessive rework". In short: a lack of good project management (and not a shortage of money.)

That's why Net Tuesday Vancouver collaborated with PM-volunteers.org on March 5 for "IT project management for nonprofits". Experts from PM-Volunteers provided an introduction to the core skills of project management and presented a case study on their work with BC211's Information Management System Implementation.
