  • Mubarak Saeed Saudi Arabia The key to a successful project is in the planning. Creating a project plan is the first task you should do when undertaking any project. Often project planning is ignored in favour of getting on with the work. However, many people fail to realise the value of a project plan in saving time, money and for avoiding many other problems.

  • Franklin King Liberia The Planning Phase: setting project objectives broad goals for the entire project are set. In particular, it must be determined if the entire system or only part of the system needs to be replaced. Whilst this does not seem to be a significant step, it is very important to the overall project. It is through the setting of these broad system goals that the measurements of success can be determined. That is, at the completion of the planning phase, a clear picture of what the problem is has been established and equally important, a clear picture of what outcome will resolve the process has also been established. It should be noted here that we have not identified what needs to built into the computer based information system. There is a very good reason for this - at this stage it is not relevant. In the problem solving phase, the focus is on identifying the problem and what would solve it - not how the problem has arisen and how it should be solved. By maintaining this focus, the solution is linked to the problem and through this a process for solving it developed. A computer based information system should never be created for the sake of creating it - it should be created to solve the problem that was identified.
