Project Context

Project context

Each project management instance needs to take its context into account strategically and persistently:

  • The local campus culture (or cultures, for inter-campus collaborations)
  • Institutional, organizational structures
  • Computing platforms
  • Timelines (external to project's internal and emergent needs)

Example: the MIT Distributed Library Initiative, which had to bridge two "different 'cultures' that emphasize rather distinct values and goals" (Davis-Millis and Owens, (1997)

Context analysis is the process of establishing a process' scope. This involves determining a boundary between internal and external factors, along with inputs, outputs, and interfaces (Gantthead).
