How to Succeed by Trying

1. Be clear about what you are trying to accomplish and what are the business drivers.

2. Involve business and IT groups early (planning stage) in the process.

3. Take every opportunity to improve the business processes and keep technology innovation as a lower level objective.

4. Keep projects short so that you can measure success/failure.

5. Base transition strategies on investments that are already necessary.

6. Get sponsorship/buy-in from senior management.

7. Do not forget/underestimate the people issues.

8. Overinvest in end-user support.

9. Use information technologies as enablers and not as drivers of change.

10. Pay special attention to reuse of existing resources including legacy.
