Stop IT Project Failure through Risk Management.
Author: Dan Remenyi (Pages
- 227), Published by Butterworth Heinemann, 1999. This book is about
information systems development failures and how to avoid them. It considers
what goes wrong with information systems development projects and what
actions may be taken to avoid potential difficulties. The reduction of the
impact, or event the elimination of the problems, is discussed in terms of an
information systems risk management programme. Stop
IT Project Failures helps to ensure that IS project managers are successful
in helping to deliver application systems. However, IS development risk can
never be entirely eliminated and consequently the practitioner needs to bear
in mind that an IS development project is never without risk, and hence there
is a continuing potential for something to go wrong. The book covers the key
issues and variable sand makes specific practical suggestions about the good
management practice that is required to implement IS project risk processes.
