The power of IT failure
“To err is human, but to really mess things up takes a computer,” runs a modern version of the old Pope proverb.
The notion surfaced during my recent interview with Prof. Peter Carr, Director of the Masters in Management Science program at the University of Waterloo.
The focus of the interview was: IT project management.
Carr, who over the years has observed and analyzed IT implementations in many companies, noted that project failures are far more common than many care to admit.
