Nobody is in the business of making poor decisions and yet the practice still continues. Join your fellow SIM practitioners in a discussion on failed IT enterprise transformation initiatives. John Belden will lead and facilitate a round table which will focus on transformation implementation disasters and the decisions that were made in which led to these failed implementations. Participants will be encouraged to share their opinions and observations on the motivation behind the decisions being made at these times.
What are the takeaways from IT enterprise transformation projects?
- Where did these projects go wrong?
- Did the teams understand the risks they were taking?
- What were the motivations behind these decisions?
What approach and techniques should you use to effectively mitigate project risks?
- What tools and practices are used?
- What best practices have you discovered?
John will kick start the round table by highlighting some relevant case studies (e.g. Bridgestone, Select Comfort and Cover Oregon) to address critical turning points in transformation projects. The session will be highly interactive with mutual sharing and learning, so please come ready to ask questions and share your advice on this topic.
