How Clear Objectives Help lead to Project Success and to Avoid Failure

My perspective is based upon observation of Information Technology projects and organizational IT department performance.  My interest is to understand the factors that contribute to the success or failure of any IT project.

One of the first elements that determine success or failure is how well we define success and failure in a project or within an organization. 

Sound simple?

IT issues in a complex world

Welcome to the inaugural istcl Blog. This blog contains our perspective on some of the important issues that confront Information Technology.

Information Technology (IT) often represents, innovation, change and hope. What changes more slowly is our society - our people, values and the processes that people and our society use to shape and to operate in our world.  This is written with humility, knowing there are many experts and a large body of writing already out there and only represents the insights gained on our own experiences. Hopefully these observations are helpful to someone.
