about

Successful and experienced IT solutions providers talk about their actual practical experiences in IT risk management. Tony Moynihan has asked successful IS/IT project managers to compare and contrast their recent projects in terms of the various important and different factors they had to deal with in each project. The issues and concerns explored in the text include: how to handle unrealistic client expectations; deciding on the 'ownership' of a project; and setting targets that work in practice! The result is a very well-written, interesting book, which will be enormously helpful to any professional who needs to cope with the many and varied problems which can be encountered in IS/IT risk management.
