Abstract:

Annotation

Imagine you are in one of Titanic?s lifeboats just sighted by the rescue ship Carpathia. As you look back at the wreckage site, you wonder how such a disaster could have happened. What were the causes? How could things have gone so badly wrong? Why did she founder? No one had expected it. Titanic?s maiden voyage was a disaster waiting to happen as a result of the compromises made in the project that constructed the ship. This book explores how modern executives can take lessons from a nuts-and-bolts construction project like Titanic and use those lessons to ensure the right approach to developing online business solutions. Looking at this historical project as a model will prove to be incisive as it cuts away the layers of IT jargon and complexity. Avoiding Project Disaster is about delivering IT projects in a world where being on time and on budget is not enough. You also need to be online? up and running around the clock for the benefit of your customers and partners. This book will help you successfully maneuver through the ice floes of IT management in an industry with a notoriously high project failure rate.
