Are You Lying To Get Your Projects Funded?
This is a curious post, in part because it's based on a paper published in April 2006, and in part because it attempts to sex up the uncontroversial statement that IT projects derive their value from the business benefits they enable.
But it does raise a deeper question, discussed here: would you lie about the business benefits of a project to get it funded?

"Lie" is such an ugly word. "Best case scenario" is much nicer.
