Business Leadership for IT Projects

08-30-2013 12:47 PM CET | Business, Economy, Finances, Banking & Insurance

Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

The track record of IT projects is poor. Less than a third of IT projects deliver what they said they would, on schedule and on budget. The major cause of IT project failure is not poor IT leadership or difficult technology but poor business leadership.

One of the reasons is that, unlike their IT peers, business managers often get little training or education in project delivery, let alone the special case represented by an IT project. Business Leadership for IT Projects addresses the gap by providing tools and ideas applicable to all sizes of IT projects, from those in large multinational corporations, to small growing businesses. It sets out the key project touchpoints where business leadership can have a major impact on project success.

The book combines psychological research and project best practice to create a practical toolbox that can be dipped into, as needs arise, or followed as an overall approach to IT project leadership.

Hardback September 2013 ISBN 978-1-4094-5690-2
Price £49.50/US$89.95
