Since the early 1950s, much has been written about project management. This literature prescribes generic steps and issues associated with a broad class of projects. In general, a project is a discreet, goal-oriented task or endeavor. A decision support project has a more specific goal of supporting decision making, but there are many ways to do that using a variety of technologies. A decision support project varies in terms of what decision will be supported, what decision makers will use the system, when and how it will be used and what type of decision support will be provided. Also, the technology solution may be poorly understood. Decision support projects are often hard to structure and manage. Moving from an informal exploration of a suggestion for support to a formal project is an important step.
