Description:

This talk investigates why being good at project management isn’t enough to generate organisational success. It covers the concept of business driven project management, why it is so powerful and how it relates to what are commonly called “IT projects”: how do the stages and gates of the lifecycles relate? What differences are there in the respective processes? Who is accountable for what? How do we deal with specialist IT methods, such as agile ones? What barriers are there we need to be aware of if our success rate is to improve?
