TAKE CONTROL of TROUBLED IT PROJECTS. According to the CHAOS Report, a widely cited industry study from the Standish Group, more than two-thirds of IT projects either fail outright or leave stakeholders disappointed. However, a lesser-known statistic from the Center for Business Practices is that organizations which use a standardized recovery process experience an 83% higher success rate than those which do not. In other words, INTERVENTION WORKS. And that’s exactly what Guerrilla Project Management (GPM) is – an intervention strategy for troubled IT projects. Recognizing a strong demand for project recovery services, Shane A. Hills, PMP, wrote Guerrilla Project Management as a 40-page "airplane read" designed to cut to the jugular and empower you with an immediate action plan. The author uses the booklet as a handout when speaking on the subject of rescuing troubled IT projects. GPM empowers your organization to 1) Identify and mitigate risk and exposure; 2) Rapidly assess the viability of your project; 3) Restore order, clarity and direction; 4) Eliminate the project’s roadblocks; 5) Expedite the delivery of high-priority functionality; 6) Achieve fast results using a streamlined process; 7) Inspire confidence with a highly visible leadership initiative; and 8) Greatly reduce the likelihood of project failure. Popular sections include "The Top 25 Reasons for IT Project Failure," "Why Most Turnaround Attempts Fail," and "The Guerrilla Justification Criteria." Find all of this and much more, including process flow diagrams, in the book.

About the Author:

Shane A. Hills, PMP®, brings a unique combination of business acumen, program management and technology awareness to his consulting engagements. His perspective is informed by 25+ years of consulting and management experience in organizations such as Xerox, Associated Wholesale Grocers, Sprint, Hallmark, DST, OdysseyRe, Southern California Gas Company, H&R Block, Hoechst Marion Roussel, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the State of Texas, and Bank of America. He has served as the program manager – leading and mentoring teams of project managers – on more than two dozen high-profile business transformation initiatives in Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. He has led teams of 10-100 resources, with P&L responsibility on programs ranging from $1m-$50m. Shane is also a Certified Turnaround Professional (CTP), a designation granted by the Turnaround Management Association and held by fewer than 1,000 consultants from top-tier firms in the United States. He is a frequent speaker on the subject of rescuing troubled IT projects, and has been quoted multiple times by the media – including print, radio, television and online. He has managed programs involving virtually all facets of an enterprise, including cyber security, human resources, inventory management, accounting and finance, customer relationship management, infrastructure management, telecommunications and marketing. His favorite activities outside of work include spending time with his wife and family, writing screenplays, amateur natural body building and reading books about history, film and business. Having graduated from the University of Kansas, he is a dedicated Jayhawk.
