About the Presentation

A 2007 study of the drivers of business outcomes for IT projects (i.e., return on investment) indicated that business success on IT projects can largely be predicted, based on an understanding of the key drivers of that outcome. This session will provide insight into that research and how we can apply the findings to improve the potential for success of any project, IT or otherwise.
