A Book That Answers Important Questions on the Topic of Risk Software implementation is risky business and success is not a certainty. But you can reduce risk with the strategies in this book.
 
Undertaking software selection and implementation without approximating the project's risk is a poor way to make decisions about either projects or software. But that's the way many companies do business, even though 50 percent of IT implementations are deemed failures.
 
In this book you will review the strategies commonly used by most companies for mitigating software project risk--and learn why these strategies don't work--and then acquire practical and realistic strategies that will help you to maximize success on your software implementation.

From the Author:

A Unique Book in the Topic AreaThis book provides an entirely different take on risk management for software projects. Instead of discussing how to list project risks, this book focuses on the bigger issues, the often undiscussed issues, such as the risk input of entities that make recommendation to companies regarding enterprise software, the attributes of the software which make an implementation more or less risky as well as several other important areas.  Who is This Book For?
Primarily this book is directed at people who work for companies that implement enterprise software. This book is not for consultants or software vendors, as some of the information provided is designed to explain to clients how to receive better value from the various entities that provide information. Essentially, a person at an implementing company will be in a better position to do this after having read this book. Table of Contents Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 2: Enterprise Software Risk Management
Chapter 3: The Basics of Enterprise Software Risk Management
Chapter 4: Understanding the Enterprise Software Market
Chapter 5: Software Sell-ability versus Implementability
Chapter 6: Selecting the Right IT Consultant
Chapter 7: How to Use the Reports of Analysts Like Gartner
Chapter 8: How to Interpret Vendor-Provided Information to Reduce Project Risk
Chapter 9: Evaluating Implementation Preparedness
Chapter 10: Using TCO for Decision Making
Chapter 11: The Software Decisions' Risk Component Model

From the Inside Flap:

The Book's Orientation
The type and quality of information provided by various entities is a touchy subject because, as I point out in this book, usually this information is intended more to improve the condition of the information provider than the receiver. Not many authors are interested in courting controversy, and this is why I believe no book like this has yet been written. Certainly, other books that describe different dimensions of the problem of risk management are also good to read. However, managing a project's risk is about more than the tactical elements of how to estimate risk. Reducing the risk of software implementations and increasing the probability of success means doing some nonconformist thinking. I provide all the information in this book; as the reader all you have to do is consider the logic of what I have written and be open to the message. If you do that, you will be far ahead of your counterparts who are not open to different thinking and are simply following the consensus viewpoint.
A Book Based in RealityThe book provides many examples from real life project experiences, the emphasis being on the reality of ERP projects.Interconnected to Web InformationIn order the keep the book at a manageable and easily readable length, the book also provides numerous links out to the SCM Focus site, where supporting articles allow readers to get into more detail on topics that interest them.
