Project success rate* has been 25% for the last decade ... a lot of money is being lost
- Most projects need some form of treatment, but how do you decide what to treat?
- How do you know that the problems have really been solved?

- Or are they just the wrong projects? Can you afford that in this economic climate?

- How can you ensure that lessons are learned rather than lost?
- How can you make changes which last?
- How can you avoid learning the "hard way" every time? Will your organisation survive such lessons?
