    IT Life Radio: Better Project Management With Accounting

    in Technology

    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


    Karla Sasser is an accomplished internal auditor, accountant and author with more than 20 years’ experience in information technology and accounting. Her areas of expertise include Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, corporate governance, enterprise risk services and IT auditing. Karla specializes in helping organizations identify and solve problems involving business processes and controls. She is a licensed certified public accountant (CPA) in Florida and California, a certified information technology professional (CITP), a certified internal auditor (CIA) and a chartered global management accountant (CGMA). She is currently a senior associate with Aviva Spectrum, Inc. of Los Angeles, a provider of internal audit, SOX compliance, and risk management services on the West Coast.

    Matthew Goldfarb - After 12 years of writing television commercials, print campaigns and websites for national clients such as 1-800-Collect (the ones with Mr. T!), Volvo, Subaru, Dove, Campbell’s and , I started Corporate Renegade in 2010 out of my spare bedroom in Brooklyn. My goal was simple: to work with clients committed to making a difference in the world stand out by refusing to look, sound and talk like everyone else. It’s five years later and while the team has grown and we’ve migrated to Western Massachusetts the mission hasn’t changed, save for one small addition: Teaching my son Nate (affectionately called “Nate Dogg”) that you should never have to compromise who you are to get what you want in this life.

    I WAS HOPING FOR A REVOLUTION BUT THE COMMUNISTS WANT A CIVIL WAR

    in Politics Conservative

    EVERY DAY I GET MORE CONVINCED THERE IS ONLY ONE PARTY RUNNING THE COUNTRY. THE COMMUNIST PARTY. THEY ARE WINNING HANDS DOWN. EVERYDAY THEY TEAR OFF A CHUNK OF THE GOOD OL USA AND GIVE US SOVIET SOS. THINK ABOUT HOW MANY AMERICAN ICONS THEY HAVE DESTROYED. COMMUNIST HOLLYWOOD GAVE US DELIVERANCE AND STEREOTYPED EVERY SOUTHERNER.  COMMUNIST HOLLYWOOD GAVE US BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN AND STEREOTYPED EVERY COWBOY.COMMUNIST HOLLYWOOD GAVE US AGNES OF GOD STARRING HANOI JANE AND STEREOTYPED ALL NUNS. THEN THEY GAVE US POOPIE GOLDFARB AS RAPPIN MOTHER.. NOW AMERICA'S CAPONS ARE COMING HOME TO ROOST AND NO ONE BUT NO ONE IS GOING TO LIKE THE OUTCOME. THE REAL QUESTION TONIGHT IS CAN WE AFFORD TO LET OBAMA CONTINUE TO DESTROY THE COMPANY ON THE GEORGE SOROS TIMETABLE OR DO WE IMPEACH TO SLOW DOWN HIS ACCELERATION?  THE SHOOTING OF THE 12 APOSTLES BY A  POSSIBLE ATHEIST ON A DRUG THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE TAKEN IN THE PRESCENCE OF A PSYCHIATRIST ALMOST CREATED BALTIMORE TWO.. ONLY BY CHRISTIAN LOVE WAS A GOOD COMMUNIST CRISIS WASTED . THANK YOU EMANUEL AME BAPTIST CHURCH. I DEDICATE MY OPENING TUNE TO YOU TONIGHT


    THE PARTY OF DEATH IS HELL BENT TO CREATE A CIVIL WAR AND WE FOOLS DO NOT SEE THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL. I AM DREADING THE WORDS I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR. THEY ARE I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT IS GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY. THE TACTIC THAT WILL DELIBERATELY SET OFF A CIVIL WAR IS REPERATIONS AND THE SEIZING OF PROPERTY. THOSE WHO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY CAN TAKE YOUR LAND AWAY. THE FIRST TARGETS WILL BE SOUTHERN FARMERS AND RANCHERS. GOD FORBID THAT DAY COMES. IF IT DOES NO ONE WILL BE SAFE. NO ONE WILL TRUST ANYBODY. WE WILL BE LIVING LIKE WE WERE IN AN IRAQI MARKET. WHEN YOU HEAD DOWN HILL YOU PICK UP SPEED.  THE JAILS ARE EMPTY.THE GATE IS OPEN. OBAMA'S ARMY IS ALREADY IN THE STREETS.
