Scope, Objectives, Approach
By asparks on Sep 25, 2008
Three little words that mean so much.
At least to Project Managers.
So as starting shot I'll outline the basic scope, objectives and approach of my blog.
I intend to focus on discussing subjects in the field of Project Management, with a particular focus on implementing packaged software: Oracle Applications, in the broadest sense.
Oracle builds great software, and we stand behind what we build.
Having said that, even the best software in the world is no use to anyone sitting in a box on a shelf.
Of all the features and functions available, it is those you use that really count and projects are the way we generally bring the software into use in our organizations.
So while most people are focusing on the what (features & functions), I am going to focus on the how and why (projects & related topics).
I hope to combine best practice that we have developed here within Oracle with external material coming from other professional disciplines. By doing this I hope to encourage a lively debate on ways and means, why's and wherefores of managing projects to implement Oracle software.
