The Silent Killer of Enterprise IT Projects

Online (A link will be provided 30 minutes before each webinar via email)


Description of this Webinar

Over seventy percent (70%) of enterprise IT projects fail. For larger, more complex projects over a million dollars the failure rate jumps to ninety-five percent (95%). These failures cost US companies roughly $500 Billion every year. Nearly seventy-five percent (75%) of these failures happen for one reason. It’s not the technology. It’s not the team. It’s because what the business is trying to do is never fully communicated; therefore, it’s never fully understood. The problem isn’t the way we communicate. It’s the silent void that represents all the things we don’t say.
