The Queensland Government plans to spend $2.6 billion on information and communication technology (ICT) projects over the next four years.The Queensland Government plans to spend $2.6 billion on information and communication technology (ICT) projects over the next four years.Each department is accountable for making investment decisions, and monitoring and delivering on its investments. Departments provide high-level overviews and status updates of major ICT investments through the ICT dashboard. This dashboard is intended to make information easily accessible, visible, and available for the public to use in a timely manner, and make it easier to identify underperforming projects and focus action on the projects that need it most.
Brian Phillips's insight:

Is measuring the benefits of digital a dark art?

Is measuring the benefits of digital a dark art? | Yellowhouse Project & Program Management | Scoop.it

In my experience, organisations really struggle with managing benefits, sometimes due to a lack of benefits management competency, but generally it is simply due to apathy. This lack of focus on benefits (and what is really important to the organisation) is a common contributor to IT project failure.

Brian Phillips's insight:

Agreed: "This lack of focus on benefits (and what is really important to the organisation) is a common contributor to IT (and other) project failure." Thanks Mal.
