Stop IT Project Failures: through Risk Management
Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
The theme of this book is risk management as it relates to IT projects, and the focus is on IT development projects in particular.Most of the material at the beginning of the book is standard fare, with an overview of IT risk management, and a discussion of common risks associated with development projects.However, after the basics are presented the author's extensive knowledge and perspective surfaces, making this one of the better books on the subject.
Highlights of the book include in-depth material about financial analysis of risks and major risk drivers, an interesting (and valid) discussion of relationships and ripple effects showing how the manifestation of one risk can cascade into a disaster if risk mitigation and controls are absent from project plans.
Additionally this book shows how to establish and manage a risk program, and provides a case study to reinforce the approach and recommendations presented in the book.Among the aspects of this book I most like are the copious use of tables and checklists, and the focus on business issues. These characterize all of the author's books, most of which I've read, and like those books this one stands out as complete and well thought out on the subject.

Product Description:
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 even the elimination of the problems,is discussed in terms of an information systems risk management programme.

Stop I.T.Project failure 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 variables and makes specific practical suggestions about the good management practice that is required to implement IS project risk processes.
