When a public instutution wants to implement an IT system, one has to collect requirements and describe them in a tender specification. Then one has to choose a contractir in a formal process defined by law. Finally one must manage the project together with the contractor. This requires a lot of knowledge and experience. Knowledge of project management methodology is a prerequisite, but is not enough. Participants of the training learn how to guide the public institution through implementation of an IT system and how to deal with problems that emerge during IT projects.
