Research from Oxford University reveals that 93 percent of projects fail at some level – 60 percent by a little and 33 percent by a lot. IT projects are critical to business survival, yet such failures are tolerated in project delivery and results. For businesses, this is a costly write-off of financial and human capital.

Written by seasoned project manager J.A. Flinn, “The Success Healthcheck for IT Projects: An Insider's Guide to Managing IT Investment and Business Change” (ISBN: 978-0-470-82572-3; John Wiley & Sons (Asia) Pte Ltd) provides a handle for project managers and sponsors to diagnose the health of a project at any stage so that projects that go askew can be brought back on track or stopped before wasting further sunk costs.

Focusing on diagnostics, tangible outcomes and solutions, Flinn identifies 8 leading indicators of success, ranging from how the project is set-up, to its ability to deliver results within the business. The book covers how to assess the likely success of the project using the current IT project portfolio track record and provides diagnostics for a specific project. It shares over 35 real-life stories many from Asia to communicate complex project issues in a practical and easy-to-understand approach for both the IT and business reader.

On the US$10,000 project, this practical book provides focus. On US$100 million dollar projects, these methods have save US$30,000,000 and improved results by up to 20 percent. If you want to save time, money and resources on your projects or improve the results from your IT projects and portfolio, then this book is essential.
