Abstract
Attention to “digital transformation” has been the driving force behind change in project management approach in IT. Relentless initiatives to adopt new technology, has been ongoing for past decades. IT investment has been part of regular budget and resource allocation in the past but IT project performance was far from stellar. It is well-established that the failure of IT projects is not because the solution or technology did not function properly but the changes required at the employee or organisational level did not work seamlessly. To put it simply, adopting new technology does not necessarily confer desired benefits. These benefits have to be unleashed, and the same can only happen via effective organizational changes and efficient project management.
