Programme and Project Management

Programme and project management are significant components of IT development and delivery. Not only do they help the project get delivered as planned, the methodologies adopted could underpin the agreements or, if the project goes off the rails, become relevant to dispute resolution or litigation. Understanding the core project management concepts is therefore vital for both those advising on contracts and those litigating at a later date.

This session is designed for those working either in the establishment of agreements that include project management or on the resolution of disputes in which this is a factor. It will introduce the major concepts used by practitioners and show their relationships. The objective is to support you in writing agreements that need to incorporate programme and project management. For contentious lawyers, the material should help you in pleading and managing a case.
