IT Project Failures: Lessons from the Ashes
About the Book
This book examines eight high-profile cases of IT project failures. Each case is discussed on the basis of eight facets of IT project management, namely, scope, time, cost, quality, human resource, communications, risk and outsourcing, where applicable. Actual ground situations are juxtaposed against theories to help readers gain both practical and theoretically robust insights into key IT project management issues. The case-ending pedagogy includes questions for discussion that are intended to spark critical thinking, debate and discussion about best practices.
This book covers the field of machine learning, which is the study of algorithms that allow computer programs to automatically improve through experience. The book is intended to support upper level undergraduate and introductory level graduate courses in machine learning.
