Just about anything. Technology projects in the public sector are often fodder for the media. Overdue, over budget, mismanaged...you name it and you've either read about them or even worse you've experienced it firsthand. Technology projects should never be taken on without the right people and structure in place if you want to improve your odds of being successful. This presentation will explore a couple technology projects and highlight some of the mistakes and pitfalls to avoid from contracting to project management to establishing a solid governance structure. You will take away several practical tips on positioning your project for success and avoid being the next headline.
