For in-house development projects, it is straight forward.
For a IT project that requires vendor involvement, would you : 1) manage the Procurement process separately from the actual System Implementation in 2 IPEC cycles? Or 2) would you combine the 2 processes and manage them as only 1 PM cycle?
Which would be a better option ? If #1, how can the 2 project cycles be managed effectively as a full project implementation from the organizatio persepective?
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
