project management

Why should ICT implementation in a school not be attempted without project management?

Sunday, June 12th, 2011 | Implementation Issues | 2 Comments

Implementation of ICT in schools is labour intensive.  An aspect often over-looked is that of project management.  Here are a few thoughts to ponder when you consider bringing ICT into your school for the first time, or when you plan to expand your current technology facilities:

ICT implementation projects require extensive project management – these projects will not succeed by themselves.

Prepare an individualized project plan for every new ICT implementation in the school – each roll-out is unique.

If project management capacity to implement an ICT project is not available in a school, obtain it from outside.

ICT projects involve infrastructure, hardware, software and training – a project manager is required to pull them all together.

An ICT project plan sets out who must do what, in what sequence it should be done, and how much it will cost.
