Project Management Information Systems
A handbook for managing development project management information systems in sub-Saharan Africa
This book presents a series of techniques, practices and processes to help project managers and project staff to manage information in a systematic way that will help improve the project interventions.
It is through information management that we can improve decision making process, learn and create new knowledge.
Knowledge derives from information, as information derives from data.
Information becomes knowledge when people do the work and realize an action that generates experiences.
The creation of valuable knowledge depends on the adoption of a holistic approach to information management; an approach that takes into consideration organizational culture and politics, information economics and processes, information standards and policies, information strategies and governance.
All this translates to an information ecosystem that puts people at the centre and technology as an enabler.
Managing a project information system has to do more with managing human behaviours than managing technology.
