Visit http://ericbrown.com/do-projects-matter-for-it.htm for a recent article I wrote on projects in IT.

- Projects don’t well-explain IT’s value to the business, and it’s getting worse.
- Work that is best organized as a classical (waterfall) project may not be valuable to your business. If you can’t express the project as an agile project, you’re probably doing something either quite complex or really vanilla. Either way, it’s not where IT is going.
