Large IT projects continue to fail at the same rate they have failed for the last 40 years. New software platforms, methodologies, and automation of IT practices have done little to stem the tide of catastrophic failures. Look no further then recent failures like MillerCoors and Bridgestone. And these failures are just the tip of the iceberg.

• Identify 3 characteristics these 12 high profile failures have in common
• Establish 4 things that organizations need to get right from the very beginning
