Abstract

Many organizations have made substantial investments in information systems (IS) delivery projects that have failed to satisfy the objectives for which they were commissioned; several projects have been abandoned before completion. There has always been a high correlation between IS project management effectiveness and successful systems delivery. Hence, the IS community has been consumed with how to reverse project failure factors and trends. However, the steady increase in IS project risk factors attributable to global and other project considerations have raised the stakes. This article explores this interesting subject and recommends an approach that integrates the objectives of the project management office with knowledge management principles to alleviate IS project coordination problems.
