What do you think about conventional wisdom on IT projects?

Because the comments being posted to this blog are usually very well informed on all matters IT, I thought it would be good to offer readers the chance to be involved in a major study.

So if you have been involved in managing an IT project your feedback would be welcome. You will get a free copy of the report for your troubles.

Computer Weekly is inviting IT project managers to take part in a research study that promises to challenge conventional wisdom on IT project management.

The study by a renowned international team of researchers led by university of Oxford in conjunction with Computer Weekly aims to re-evaluate the way organisations manage and measure the success of IT projects.

The study is led by three internationally renowned professors, Dr Chris Sauer from the University of Oxford, and Dr Blaize Horner Reich and Dr Andrew Gemino from the Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, who have worked on studies into IT project management over the past 7 years.

We are inviting you to participate in our research by completing a short 10 – 15 minute survey. In return, we will send you a personal copy of the preliminary report. To fill out the survey please click here.

"conventional wisdom on IT project management"

Wisdom in IT project management? I'll let you know if I encounter any! I'm reminded of the old saying that the thing about common sense is that it is not that common...
