A shift in mindset for IT project success: escaping the meaningless mantra of on time and on budget

Business Leadership for IT Projects

 

The track record of IT projects is poor. Less than a third of IT projects deliver what they said they would, on time and on budget. The major cause of IT project ‘failure’ is not, however, poor IT leadership or difficult-to-use technology; it is poor business leadership.

 

Project success depends not on processes and procedures but a shift in mindset across three key dimensions:

 

 ●     Psychology

 ●     Leadership

 ●     Value

 

This talk and workshop  aims to help you make that shift in mindset and to equip you with practical tools that you can put to immediate use on your project. It is based on Gary’s book “Business Leadership for IT Projects”.

 

If you have a project that you are working on, the short workshop elements will allow you to use the collective wisdom of a group of attendees to help you improve the probability of getting the value you want from your project. If not, why not help someone else, or alternatively you can use a short case study that will be available.

Organiser

Warwick London Alumni Network (W.L.A.N)

The Warwick London Alumni Network (W.L.A.N) was formed in late 2009. We develop relationships amongst members and offer a balanced programme of business-oriented and social events for alumni and others with connections to Warwick and WBS.

The aim of the group is to build on the work of the Corporate Relations Team to create an identity & meeting place for London based Warwick graduates (both University & Business School).

We seek to encourage graduate engagement by organising interesting and fun events and other initiatives so that they too may give something back that will benefit the wider Warwick graduate community in London.

Don't let the Warwick experience end just because you have graduated ;)
