Survivor's Guide to IT Hell
One thing is certain - that IT projects will fail
Author: Richard Ferguson
Paperback - A5 - 200pp - £14.99 - ISBN 1-85252-465-0
Here is the real story of IT failures - an insider's view of the many problems and how to avoid them. It is sad that a lot of very bright, capable people continue to get it very badly wrong. The aim of this important book is to help decision makers and those who analyse and commentate on these matters to understand what really goes on at the heart of a big IT development. It lifts the lid on the inner workings of the process, points out where the problems lie and what can be done to avoid the biggest pitfalls. It is not the management systems themselves that break down but the 'people' element - confusion, politicking, vanity, poor communications - and stupidity and laziness.
