Jonathan and I are taking the IT failures discussion off the blog page, and into the real world, on December 3 at AMR's office near South Station in Boston. There's no cost and you'll meet other folks interested in chatting about this topic. This interactive, unconference-style session will be fun and informative; Jonathan will serve as discussion initiator to kick things off.
And maybe best of all: I'll supply coffee and bake homemade muffins for all attendees! Yeah, I love to cook so this will be fun.
Topic: IT Failures Town Hall: Lessons to be learned so you can stay off the list
Session description: As the economy worsens, many organizations have higher expectations, and less tolerance, for failed projects. We'll discuss strategies for reducing failures, increasing project success rates, and demonstrating higher project ROI. Most of all, we plan to have a great time!
Discussion initiator: Jonathan Yarmis is Vice President at AMR Research, where he is responsible for the firm's coverage of advanced and disruptive technologies. A longtime analyst, having previously covered enterprise issues for Gartner, he's a frequent and highly in-demand conference speaker.
Date and time: Wednesday, December 3, 2008 from 8:00-9:30 AM
