What do you do differently to have such a high success rate for your project delivery?

Boris Petukhov 19 April 2018

According to some industry sources, the average large IT project runs 45% over budget and 7% over time and delivers 56% less value than expected; one in six IT projects has an average cost overrun of 200% and a schedule overrun of 70%.

 In the last 25 years, I have delivered numerous E2E implementations on time and budget to full scope. These Initiatives were completed in Waterfall and Agile fashion, translating into a 100% success rate for both timing and resources.

Bayesian Networks for Project Risk Management


Boris Petukhov 10 April 2018

Flyvbjerg and Budzier say that one in six IT projects has an average cost overrun of 200% and a schedule overrun of 70%. To somewhat improve our chance of successful delivery, we attempt to manage project risks effectively.

Management professionals apply their skills and knowledge to actively manage risks related to the initiatives their teams need to deliver. This is supported by the so-called Risk Register (aka Risk Log), which contains qualitative and quantitative information about those risks in many organisations.

 This case study looks at the common ways to present risk-related information and how the tools of choice help the staff responsible for risk management benefit from the currently available techniques. In particular, we look at how Bayesian Networks (BN) are used to adequately manage IT project delivery risks.

“Many small businesses do not undertake surveys to see if they offer what their customers want. This is often because it is too difficult, expensive, or complicated. Well, there is now a way a small business can do this with great support and ease from Argo Computing. MCEI used their DC Portal® – Outsourced Shared Managed Service to complete an online survey of delegates to a recent Conference.

Argo Computing set up the survey online, and it was simply a matter of sending a link to the delegates. Having the results shown as a bar graph for each question was very beneficial, ensuring that MCEI can offer a bigger and better Conference in the future based on what customers want. If you are looking for an easy solution to taking surveys, this Australian company is the way to go.”

“On behalf of Carers Victoria and specifically the Carer & Counselling team, I would like to thank you for the work you undertook updating our internal database to support our business processes around anonymous calls, carer advisory services and carer counselling services.
You and your team were able to quickly understand our business, articulate our requirements and implement a solution that not only met our contract requirements with our funders but also improved information flow and data extraction.
Once the contract terms were agreed to, the work commenced immediately and was completed within the agreed timeframe and budget.
The after-sale service and support staff access have also been excellent; nothing seems to be too much trouble, and the responsiveness to our questions and emails has been timely and relevant.
Overall, the project has been declared a success by all those involved – thank you.”

Sharon Strutt – Executive Manager

“Maranatha Christian School is a large independent school in Melbourne’s South Eastern Suburbs. In order to streamline our online enrolment process, Argo Computing was engaged to develop an on-line application form with key information being updated to a database. The aim was to eliminate input duplication for prospective parents as well as for our staff. The result is a user-friendly online application form which makes the application process easier for both prospective parents and our staff. The project was delivered on time and within budget, and the staff at Argo Computing were always available to ensure our requirements were met.”
