Description

This project will focus on the importance of project management as a fundamental base for the success Information Technology projects, with the relation to multicultural aspects. Information and Communication technology has a high ratio in project management failure; this ratio is for all IT projects around the world. By that it is important to understand the reasons behind IT project success and failure, as well as spotting the light on the specific countries in order to understand the metamorphosis of cross-cultural IT views. This project will discuss reasons behind Information Technology project failure, in relation with the demographic of the IT projects. Even though, within the similarities and global standards in the IT field, still many projects vary and fail in regards of the relation with demographics. Different countries are having different approaches, in order to fulfill the cultural restrictions or the countries rules and regulation. This research emphasis on the project management methodologies in IT firms and organization, and will contain detailed causes and factors of having unsuccessful projects in different countries and international IT organizations. In order to understand the IT projects, in this research the majority of data is collected through research papers or scholarly articles. In addition, to have the full comparison of different countries, the focus of the research is on IT companies CEOs and IT manager in Middle Eastern countries. The basic statistics and graphs are referred to researches that touch the IT projects aspects. The anticipated results of this research are the focus on the IT projects with the use of global standards and case studies to implement a successful IT project. Also some of the expected results are to reach to the main causes that lead IT projects to be incomplete, over budget, or need extension.
