Bird & Bird, 15 Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1JP

Bird & Bird is delighted to invite you to a breakfast briefing titled 'Major IT project failures - what is going wrong?' on Wednesday 26 March 2014.

Failing major IT projects have once again been creating newspaper headlines in recent months.

We'd like to invite you to the latest in our ongoing series of IT breakfast briefings in which we will host an open discussion on the challenges associated with successfully delivering major IT projects, including:

  • how common are failed IT projects?
  • to what extent are IT projects inherently riskier than other major projects?
  • what are the common themes in major IT project failures?
  • how are recent developments like cloud and agile affecting major IT projects?

We are delighted that Andrew Wilson, Principal at Hudson & Yorke will be able to join us. Andrew is a seasoned practitioner with over 20 years’ experience of commercial strategy, procurement, project management and contract formulation in the managed and outsourced services arena.

We hope you will be able to join us.
