According to some industry sources, the average large IT project runs 45% over budget, 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 15 years, I have delivered 26 E2E implementations on-time and on-budget to a full scope. These initiatives were completed in both Waterfall and Agile fashion. This translates into 100% success rate in relation to both timing and resources.
Project delivery is a very risky business.
According to , the average large IT project runs 45% over budget, 7% over time, and delivers 56% less value than expected; 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. In many organisations this is supported by the so-called Risk Registerer (aka Risk Log), which contains both qualitative and quantitative information about those risks.
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 manage risks of IT project delivery adequately.
Projectise & Productise. A case study of applying project management techniques to an accounting practice.
Normally job pipeline driven operation – Professional Accounting Services – does not employ many principles of project management discipline. It is when the owners decide that it is time to achieve some ambitious objectives and implement some dramatic changes into day to day operation, some innovative solutions are adopted and spectacular results are observed.
In this case study we are going to show how operational planning and scheduling techniques proposed by Argo Scheduling 2015  are applied to an accounting taxation and compliance practice to gain efficiencies in their operation.
In addition to that, this study reflects on how productisation of practice’s offering is implemented to make the company more competitive and appealing to current and prospective clients.
