This research work is an application of PERT ford installation of information technology systems in bank. Problems militating against Information Technology system and allied products in banks include: Cost of Implement. Lack of acceptance, and pricing as well as Technical standards. Members of staff of information technology departments in banks were interviewed, also survey questionnaire were administered to users of information technology systems in the banks.
Using the project management technique of Project Evaluation and Review Technique, an optimum cost schedule (budget) was developed as well as the best and worse completion times for application of PERT for installation of information technology systems in banks. The analyses of coefficient of ranked correlation, rejected the null hypothesis, and accepted the alternate hypothesis of strong positive relationship, between increased work performance and acceptability of appropriately installed information technology systems in the three sets of old as well as new generation banks that were studied.
- Also the analyses of coefficient of ranked correlation rejected the null hypothesis and accepted the alternate hypothesis of strong positive relationship between the application of user’s requirement process and high acceptability of information technology systems by users in all the three sets of old generation banks as well as two sets of new generation banks that were studied. The research concluded that the adoption of the project management technique PERT, will go a long way to providing optimum cost schedule for application of PERT for installation of information technology systems in bank s and that low return on investment of Information technology systems in banks may not be attributed to work performance of and or acceptability by end users but to poor communication network as well as unstable electric power supply infrastructure in Nigeria. The research recommended that systems development project managers should do well to adopt the Project Evaluation and Review Technique, PERT for installation of information Technology Systems in banks.
