Who to Blame for Project Failure? Look Up-Not Down, Not Left, Not Right
Project failure is not a nice topic. None of us wants to be involved in a failure. But when a failure occurs, we feel compelled to assign blame. But who really

What Makes a Good IT White Paper Good… and a Bad IT White Paper Very, Very Bad…


A white paper is a document or “brief” (and yes, perhaps unfortunately, I mean “brief” in the sense of something that informs rather than something that is short—white papers are sometimes as concise as newspaper editorials, or run as long as the latest “… For Dummies” book; examples of this will be provided in upcoming posts).
