Project management style and technological uncertainty (part 1)
from low- to high-tech
Project management has been around for many years and the techniques have time and again proven effective. The effectiveness of project management can be enhanced by basing the choice of project management techniques, managerial style, and attitude toward the project, on the level of risk and level of technology involved in the project. A model of four levels of technology projects was drawn to aid project managers to more effectively manage a project with the managerial style most appropriate to the project. Appropriate attitudes and managerial styles are recommended based on level of technology, and ultimately level of uncertainty of the project. The four classifications of technological projects are: low, medium, high, and super high tech.
