Using ICT and Control Mechanisms in Project Management: How ICT enables and affects control mechanisms
The causality of troubled ICT projects and driven force of more systematic project management approach within IT sectors is not easy to be defined in practice due to the variety of industry and business needs.
In this report, I will mainly focus on issues addressing to ICT tools providing voice, data and media services and information applications and systems tailored to specific functions in the IT- enabled industries which provide IT goods and services.
My main hypothesis is Using ICT enables and provides the most effective framework for control mechanisms of IT projects.
I found it was difficult to provide a clear conclusion, along with revealing the effects of using ICTs in the IT industry; there are more raising questions connected with using of ICTs which need more future research. But one thing is certain, using ICTs doesnt have an evolutional impact on the project management as first thought; I can still see the clear footprint of the traditional and classical organization theories from Mintzberg.
The various ways of transmission of information and the increased speed and volume in the transmission of information, which are enabled by using ICTs have changed and affected the control system for the better and the worse.
