Update 7/29/09: Listen to a recording of this great session:

Standing at the bridge between business strategy and IT, CIOs play an important and complicated role in modern organizations. The next IT failures town hall conversation will explore the CIO's impact on IT success and failure.

We'll discuss issues such as:

  • The CIO's role in achieving successful projects
  • Organizational conditions that lead to success or failure
  • Areas in which CIOs need to improve
  • The CEO's impact on project outcomes
  • Role played by other stakeholders within IT, the business user community, and external vendors on project success or failure

Given the growing importance of Enterprise 2.0, we'll also talk about success and failure on social media and collaboration projects.

I will be joined for this event by Chris Curran, Partner and CTO at Diamond, (NASDAQ: DTPI) a strategic management and technology consulting firm. He works closely with senior client management on their most complex and strategic technology issues, helping to define the IT organization, deploy technology governance and management practices, and develop business and technical architectures.

He also regularly contributes to a variety of industry journals, including the CIO Leadership Forum, CIO Insight, Investor’s Business Daily, Baseline, Optimize, and Insurance and Technology. In addition, he is an active member of the Center for Information Systems Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and serves on the MIT Quarterly Executive Advisory Board.

  • Examples of recent IT failures

    Could you point me to any recent (last 5 years) of
    large federal IT failures? What's the best source
    for monitoring federal IT? OMB?
