Thesis topics

Why do the overwhelming majority of large government ICT projects still fail? ICT is now a mature industry in both the public and private sectors, the industry remains well funded, there are standards, guidelines and methodologies, yet failure is still the norm. Explaining why this pattern of persistent failure remains the norm is the puzzle to be addressed in this thesis. Thesis Supervisory Panel: Panel Chair: Professor John Wanna
