Abstract

This paper synthesises prior research findings to highlight how few IT projects realise all their expected benefits despite the widespread use of project management and technical methodologies. Using plausible assumptions derived from research the paper suggests only a third of IT projects currently deliver any benefits at all and that overall ROI is around 30%. It suggests IT Project Governance has the potential to increase ROIs to 135-240%. A large organisation that spends $30M pa on IT might realise an additional $10.5M to $21M pa, and nationally GDP might be lifted by 1.6% to 3.1%. Further research is suggested.
