Yawntastic delays at NHS mega project

Not sure whether the appropriate word is “still” or “again” but here and here is another piece of news of failures to deliver technology systems in the UK public sector.

While I’m on the subject here are a couple of other items that popped up today. IT failure ’causes £130m arrears’  courtesy of Phynbarr. And Moody’s to investigate staff over rating bug (that “incorrectly rated about $1bn of complex debt securities”)  from the FT (free registration required).
And yet organisations keep going over the same ground with the same approaches. And wonder why they continue to fail. Perhaps Michael Krigsman should become part of the standard training for all people involved in software projects. In particular for the sponsors and managers who are (in theory) accountable for the project.
