IT Projects fail at an alarming rate. Estimates range to as high as 86%, but it is safe to say that at least half of all IT projects fail to deliver on-time, on-budget, and provide the anticipated results. How can you improve your results?
According to Karla Sasser, IT could learn a lot from the beancounters in accounting. Sasser has worked on both the IT and accounting and she knows how they take sides. IT gets annoyed at accounting's constant worrying about every penny, and accounting looks at IT as rather haphazard. Here's the thing. As IT and finance get increasingly digitized, the practices of both are starting to overlap. Each can inform the other and make both work smarter and better.
Sasser's book, Friggin' Beancounters, is on that exact issue. She believes she can help everyone work better. On the next episode of IT radio we'll ask Sasser how accounting can help IT:
Get more projects in on time and on budget
Learn from the best practices of accounting
Make the CFO happier while still delivering the tech they think is best
Come together around basic common needs
