Managing Choices & Chance
→ High risk?
→ Rapidly changing environments?
→ Numerous uncertainties?
→ Failure to agree about what to do?
Technology planning problems pose significant difficulties for decision makers. While it may be easy to identify the direct material and labor costs associated with technology programs, quantifying the (often intangible) benefits, competitive advantages, and opportunity costs presents a difficult problem. Managers forced to justify technology programs and projects on the basis of avoided costs and direct costs often find that traditional ROI calculations fail to provide the financial justification to move forward. If managers do move forward on the basis of intuition and traditional planning methods, they may possess limited understanding of the risk factors that can cause budget, schedule, and requirements failures.
These situations result in many valuable technology initiatives being adopted that should be abandoned (or vice versa), never ending cycles of analysis and rework, and lingering doubts about the value of newly proposed or ongoing efforts.
