Tomorrow’s Technology and You 8/e Chapter 12 Planning for Information Systems
Fourth phase: project planning
Organize a sequence of steps to accomplish a project’s goals and to keep the project on schedule and within budget.
A project plan includes a description of the measurable project goals that are used to evaluate the success of the project.
A project goal can relate to the process of building the information system—completing the project by a certain date, for example.
Project management software helps coordinate, schedule, and track complex projects.
