Project Management
Planning:  Develop a comprehensive IT strategy.  Define major systems and data models and define tasks schedules and budgets.
Organizing:  Define major functions to be performed and group staff around functions.  (See Organizational Evolution)
Staffing:  Recruit only the highest skill level, pay as much as possible, and expect staff to routinely perform the impossible.  (Ultimately, this is the least expensive option.)
Directing:  Make clear assignments and expect high performance.
Controlling:  Use a range of tools, such as network schedules, Gantt Charts, and status reports based on plans to insure progress.
