While working with hundreds of customers globally, I see lot of mistakes being done. This leads to poor ROI and business value. Best Practices get all the limelight. But mistakes are never documented publicly. Hence I am writing this series.
Some mistakes are strategic, some technical, some operational. The worst practices article list is growing! Here is a list of all articles I have written on this topic so far. Future articles will also be added to keep this knowledge pack current. Your comments and suggestions are welcome.
This series started with a keynote in a CIO conference in India. The session was so well received that I decided to write about it in detail. Most CIOs said “We have already done these mistakes! Tell us how to come out of it”.
This series is not just a grim tale of mistakes. It provides practical solutions as well. More importantly, it also discusses the root cause of the mistakes – which can often be traced to psychology rather than technology.
