No IT Consulting Firm – addressing the non-tech challenges that make tech investment work
For the CEO and key decision makers, investments in digital technology pose a substantial risk.
ICT projects are now so big they have significant impact across many aspects of an organisation, not just on commercial success. For example, research reports average cost overruns of 27% yet this hides the evidence that 1 in 6 can face overruns of 200% and more.
Why do projects fail to deliver as expected?
In part, it is due to the inability of classic project management to effectively deal with ever larger and complex challenges. Complexity is about more than just technology; it comes from human factors and from fresh pressures placed on operations.
Execution that takes account of these non-technical challenges as well as the technical is the make-or-break factor.
Addressing the non-technical challenges
However strong the logic, decisions can be upturned by often unseen and unanticipated challenges. For example, stakeholder & partner relationships, internal politics, user engagement, programme management, leadership, lack of strategic clarity or buy-in - all have huge impact on critical speed and execution.
