According to Oracle there are six culprits to project failure, unengaged stakeholders, poor risk management, vague project scope definition, delayed critical project communication, lack of enforcement of methodologies used and unsuccessful automated tools to provide continuous process feedback. (Oracle 2011)
Through my research I realized there is an opportunity to improve the way information is managed across IT Programs by customizing and integrating applications to follow well defined CMMI, ITIL, ISO or another standardized software development approach to minimize the potential for project failure. For example, a project team with the objective to implement a grants management system for the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) National Institute of Health (NIH) could learn from a project team that has implement a grants management system for HHS’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This opportunity Is similar to the implementation of an enterprise management system to manage every repeatable component for an automotive assemble line.
The system store, share, manage and structure IT project information. The information would be structured to be repetitive and reusable within and across other IT programs and projects. All program and project team members will be able to access one information in one location to manage the entire IT Programs Portfolio. The information would be structured to be repetitive and reusable within and across other projects.
