Project champions in the context of socio-political issues of project management

This paper explains our findings on linking projects to the broader organization goals. The projects were not started as social experiments, but it was learned that unless you took care of the social issues, other problems would develop. Here we report our experiment and findings, as mentioned in the book Technology Scorecards: Aligning IT Investments with Business Performance, of what needs to be done to take care of the social issues in the chapter “Human Factors.” All aspects are examined and presented in light of what worked and what did not work in major global projects with multiple stakeholders. Three areas of human factors were of particular impact since they were concerned with the project management, project champions, and business case development. They were found to be the cornerstones of socio-political and socio-economic areas of the projects. Discussing all three of them is far beyond the scope of this paper so this paper will be limited solely to addressing the project champions.
