eLearning development projects and formal project management

We're still looking into this area and will definitely be commenting more upon it… at this point our research indicates that there are significant problems with too many large eLearning development projects. ("too many" is our way of saying we actually don't know the number but anecdotally LOTS of projects are experiencing grief.)

One thing we've started to do is to map the issues raised in the eLearning community vis a vis the causes of their grief to the formal Project Management structure promulgated by the Project Management Institute (PMI). This has been an eye opening experience in that the problems experienced by the eLearning community are classic PM problems… scope creep, stakeholder management, HR/team management, scheduling issues,etc. And, this is good news, because the PM community is trained to solve those problems!

More to come…
