Yesterday I attended a JISC training day, Managing Successful Projects in the Education Sector, given by the excellent John Burke, who quoted a very sobering statistic. JISC gives funding to all manner of projects, feasibility studies and so on, and he’s been involved in overseeing many over the years. The statistic?
Forty percent of JISC funded projects fail due to lack of senior management buy-in and influence.
Makes you think, doesn’t it.
