A standard, consistent approach to IT project management helps projects, and your department, be successful. It allows you to establish ground rules and expectations at the beginning so that everyone is on the same page. It enables the project to run more smoothly because there is a common approach and terminology. Finally, and importantly, the project can be measured more effectively, which helps hone in on future improvements for managing projects.
