journal contributionposted on 2017-06-05, 05:57 authored by Henderson, Susan, Beaumont, Nicholas
The abstract nature of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) creates unique issues for IT practitioners and non-practitioners as they manage project uncertainty and its associated risk. Organisations are often driven by the need to acquire the latest technology without assessing potential risks, often believing the technology will be able to evolve to fit their user requirements. This paper examines the literature to ascertain if themes pertaining to the type of strategies organisation have adopted or should adopt to reduce or remove risks due to project uncertainty have emerged.
