Technology Assignment

Debate: For IT security acquisitions (products or services), which is the most important of the three project management constraints:

Cost
Quality
Schedule

Choose the constraint (“factor”) that you believe should be prioritized when managing an IT acquisition project. Write a 3 to 5 paragraph briefing statement in which you identify and then defend your selection. Your statement should address the following items:

1. Provide definitions for each of the constraints

2. Identify your chosen constraint and provide a more detailed description of how this constraint impacts project management (what happens to the other two factors). For example, if you decide that cost is the most important factor, explain the tradeoffs you might need to make with respect to quality and schedule. Or, if you decide that quality is most important (e.g. correct implementation of security controls), explain how that might affect cost and schedule.

3. Provide a closing summary of the importance of project management for IT acquisitions (with respect to the overall IT security program).

Provide in-text citations and references for 3 or more authoritative sources. Put the reference list at the end of your article.
