Having just a good idea is
not good enough. Planning, Research, Cost/Benefit, Risk
management, Building, Change Management, Testing and Monitoring
when live are all important keys to success.
Many IT projects can fail
to deliver the perceived value once implemented, and it is clear
that appropriate measurements are in place to manage the whole
project through from initiation to conclusion.
It is important to have a
team with the right mix of skills and experience so that
problems are foreseen and overcome, realistic costs and benefits
are agreed, and that the right quality of delivery can be made.
