A Course Model for Information Technology Project Management Instruction Based on the Project Management Institute's Body of Knowledge
This paper describes our capstone course for Managing Information Technology (IT) projects. All students regardless of technology track, systems analysis and design, database, telecommunications and network design, and software development take the course in their 7th or 8th semester. The course model is based on the project management body of knowledge created by the Project Management Institute (PMI, 2000). The course also follows very closely the guidelines presented in the IS'97 curriculum document (ACM, 97). This paper describes the dire need for skilled IT project managers, a brief explanation of what a project is, our curriculum and where this course fits into it, an outline of the course content and sequence of topics presented in a 15 week semester, and future directions for the course.
