The ARIADNE Methodology

The ARIADNE Methodology®


A Technocratic Investments Project Management Methodology

for the Information Systems

Development and Acquisition Process 

The ARIADNE Methodology is a very large and honorable chapter of EMPROSS.    ARIADNE combines a number of innovative project management concepts and structures in a unique integration and harmony not found in no other methodology and methodological framework worldwide. 


The Issue:  Managing a project can be more difficult than implementing the project itself. Managing ICT projects is actually managing complexity which can be very risky financially and operationally.  Nearly 80% of the ICT projects failed due to poor project management.  NASA on a specific project only had 70% budget overruns, and some time ago, the US DoD had only 3% of its project implemented on time, budget and quality. Those statistics get very scary when they measure ITC projects implementation at a time where most organizations have to either invest on ICT or go out of business.  Most existing management practices are still bureaucratic and affordable only by large organizations.  As of today ICT project management is a luxury for most organizations who seek the faster cheaper better methodology.      Read more...
