9781895186260: Titanic Lessons for It Projects (Lessons from History)

R.M.S. Titanic was considered by many, including its designers and builders, to be an unsinkable ship. With redundant safety systems that used the latest emerging technologies of the day, the ship was considered so safe that it did not even need a full complement of lifeboats. Yet, a collision with an iceberg put an end to the ship on its maiden voyage and led to the deaths of thousands of passengers and crew.

The sinking of Titanic is one of the worst maritime disasters ever. "Titanic Lessons for IT Projects" analyzes the project that designed, built, and launched the ship, showing how compromises made during early project stages led to serious flaws in this supposedly "perfect ship." In addition, the book explains how major mistakes during the early days of the ship's operations led to the disaster. All of these disasterous compromises and mistakes were fully avoidable.

Author Mark Kozak-Holland shows how the lessons learned from the disaster can be applied to IT projects today. In modern IT projects, we often have situations where we believe that we have designed, built, or launched a "perfect" solution. Kozak-Holland juxtaposes the Titanic story and modern IT projects so that we can learn from the disaster and avoid making similar mistakes.

Entertaining and full of intriguing historical details, the book helps project managers and IT executives see the impact of decisions similar to the ones that they make every day. An easy read full of illustrations and photos to help explain the story and to help drive home some simple lessons.

From the Publisher:

The following reviews were posted on Gantthead.com:

The [book] was wonderful and fit together like a puzzle. Using the Titanic as an analogy is a great hook as well as teaching tool. (January 22, 2004)

This is totally on the mark! (January 30, 2004 )

I just read over all [of this book] and found it excellent. Many of us have ofter referred to the Titanic in working on projects, we now see how close we were. The lessons learned from this tragety can be applied to projects today. (September 18, 2004)

My congratulations go to the the author on a riveting [ebook]. I was glued to the screen, reading each part to discover ‘what happened at the end’. If [he is] in PM, maybe [he is] in the wrong trade. An excellent read. (May 24, 2005)

From the Author:

According to popular myth a combination of factors led to Titanic's disaster namely bad luck, a hidden ice-spur, material failure, brittle steel, bad luck and incompetence at sea. According to more recent research, based on a closer re-examination and re-interpretation of the two Titanic inquiries, the truth lies closer to factors that plague projects today that lead to project failure. Namely, poor project management which allowed major compromises to be made in every project stage - from design to construction to testing, and right into implementation and operation. Some compromises were more significant like those in the design and the shortened height of the bulkheads, or the reduced number of lifeboats. In today's terms these are known as compromises in non-functional requirements.
 
Olympic's collision with H.M.S. Hawke (see photo below) also played a significant part as it impacted Titanic's project schedule as major repairs had to be carried out. The scope of Titanic's sea trials (testing) was dramatically reduced so the launch window could still be realized, after all the world's richest people had booked for the social event of 1912. If you were one of the financial elite you had to be on board, White Star had completed a brilliant marketing job.
