Effective project management assists organizations in carrying out mega projects on budget and on time. However, more projects are being labeled the “black swan”, meaning that the project has run four times over budget and two times over time. In fact, every fifth project becomes such. This phenomenon describes events that are uncommon and unpredictable but in hindsight, do not seem so improbable…

In this issue of the “360°– the Business Transformation Journal”, we present the success and failures of mega projects, and how IT technology enables a company to innovate and grow. We present two articles on innovation and strategic realignment of business models and a thought-provoking article on shared services. Moreover, a link is established between the Theory of Planned Behavior and the Business Transformation Management Methodology.
