Down the Money Pit with Jim Johnson

Antwerp Management School (AMS) and ADM joined forces to organise a special event for its members. Jim Johnson (Standish Group) joined us at Wetenschapspark Universiteit Antwerpen for a special lecture on his "Money Pit" research.

To be able to sit in with a lecture by Jim Johnson is truly a rare opportunity. So, Frans Verstreken and Prof. Dr. Hans Mulder (Antwerp Management School) kept their introductions as brief as possible so they could quickly make way for the speaker that everyone wanted to see.

Jim Johnson, founder and chairman of the Standish Group, took the time to share the breakdown of the true cost of a project with us: the Money Pit research. This report reveals not only the budget cost but also the hidden costs such as business justification, executive meetings, development testing and education. 

Finally, as an extra treat, Jim gave the participants an exclusive look at the current numbers from CHAOS, the most comprehensive database on the success and failure of IT projects, whilst giving the ADM and AMS members present the opportunity to ask any questions they might have on the matter.
