Q4Results of Improper Project Management

Learning Objective: Analyze an IT project lacking proper management.

According to Flinders (August, 2011), approximately 17% of information technology projects have an average cost overrun of 200%. In addition, they have a high occurrence of scope creep - 20 times greater than other types of projects. Some suggest that the cause is attributed to managers' lack of IT expertise.

Find an article that addresses failed IT projects (failed information security projects preferred). 

In at least 250 words, address the following in your main post.

  • Summarize the article and include your opinion on the major points.
  • Compare the article's assertions with Flinders (2011) in terms of cost overruns, number and causes of failures. 
  • Do you agree with Flinders or the author of your article?

Make sure your opinion is substantiated with valid reasons and references to the concepts covered in the course.
