Huang, Yao-Tsung 30 July 2008 (has links)
¡@¡@More and more organisations are increasing the demand of Information Technology (IT) project owing to the rapid technological development in nowadays business environment. With the high growth of IT project, it can cause heavy work-overload for IT Managers, which often resulted in reduction of work productivity. In reality, a considerable number of tasks in organisation are operating by projects. These require more project managers to control. Unfortunately, industry analysis reveals that qualified IT project managers have not increased relatively. Many managers have experience in participation or leading in project management, which portrays those managers have reached a certain extent of competences of project management. It is possible that organisations can select qualified IT managers from those non-IT background managers. ¡@¡@The study will use the theory of focus groups by interviewing some managers, who have the experience in IT project management, to identify the essential competences requirements of a non-IT project manager as being an IT project leader. Meanwhile, analyze the top three competences for IT project managers that usually mentioned by scholars so as to understand the critical impact asnd relationship for the non-IT project managers as leading IT project. ¡@¡@The final conclusion and contribution of this study are as follows: 1. A non-IT project manager should have the "30 competences" in leading the IT related environment. 2. "Communication, planning and control," not only are the basic competences, but also "the most important competences". If the non-IT project manager is lacking these three competences, he is not qualified to be an IT project manager. 3. Compare to an IT project manager, a non-IT project manager is lacking the knowledge and skills within the IT environment. One of the most important aspects is tool capacity, followed by the "IT based knowledge" 4. A non-IT project manager needs a strong ¡§communication skills" to help him strengthen the "planning capacity" and to overcome the inadequate "control capabilities".

Yu, Yang. Unknown Date (has links)
This thesis will highlight leadership styles applied by project manager in different situations. In order to have a comprehensive understanding of the leadership style, the thesis will review some of the well known leadership theories including traits theory, behaviour theory and contingency theory etc. In addition, the concept of project management and project manager as well as project success are mentioned in the thesis. Issues will be identified at the end of literature review and they will be the focus in the following chapters. / Based on the information gathered from the literature review, case study and questionnaire survey are conducted to further investigation. Three cases related to construction and IT industries have been selected and they will be analysed to examine the situations matched with appropriate leadership style. Furthermore, project manager and his team members' roles will be identified in each case. Questionnaire survey has 50 questions that are designed to identify the respondent's opinions to project manager's roles, traits and their leadership style etc. / The findings of the research will be concluded in the last chapter. These findings show that project manager can not use a single leadership style in all situations. Therefore, project manager needs to clarify the surrounding and choose an appropriate style that will help him to achieve an effective environment in which project team members and other stakeholders can contribute their knowledge and skills to project success. Recommendations for the further investigation will also be put forward at the end of this chapter. / Thesis (MProjectManagement)--University of South Australia, 2006.

Barriers that hinder the maturation of project management as a profession in Australia /

Valverde, Felix Coello. Unknown Date (has links)
A professional status for project management will enable it to provide a better service to society. Project management is recognised as a discipline and embraced by many practitioners as an occupation. However, it is still not fully recognised as a profession due to some barriers that hinder its maturation as a profession. Judging by a sociological analysis of professions, occupation reach professional status by fully satisfying approaches of 'process' and 'characteristics'. / The endeavour to professionalise project management is an international effort. The process to achieve professional status and the characteristics of professions follows universal principles. Therefore, the literature review draws on information from the global context whilst the questionnaire survey focuses on Australia. / Outcomes of the literature review have been supported and enlarged by the questionnaire survey findings. The main barriers that hinder the maturation of project management as a profession are the following: firstly, weaknesses in knowledge base and philosophical principles; secondly, lack of project management competency at individual and organisational levels; thirdly, lack of project management courses at university levels; fourthly, lack of solid professional standards; fifthly, lack of project management culture in business organisations; sixthly, misuse of the title 'project manager' in the work environment; and seventhly and finally, frailness in professional culture and weak sense of community among practitioners. These barriers interact with and influence each other, thereby creating more barriers. / Project management is in the process of maturation as a profession. However, for project management to achieve this, it will mainly rely on the competency of practitioners and professional organisations to overcome the mentioned barriers. There is also the inherent factor of maturation: that is, time to achieve it. / Thesis (MProjectManagement)--University of South Australia, 2004.
