I designed this presentation to help project sponsors perform their roles more effectively and confidently. Are you a project sponsor who is feeling nervous or apprehensive about the state of an IT project? Today, I want to help you bring that gnawing feeling of impending doom out into the open in a constructive way. I’ll describe the ten most common project topics that contribute to project success or failure. I’ll show you how to turn every failure observation into a success. Part 2 describes the last five of the ten most common project topics.
