My 30+ minute video
about the 10 Commandments of IT Contracts is available for viewing
thanks to my friends at Financial Management Network (& parent SmartPros Ltd.).
For more than 30 years I've negotiated and litigated hundreds of IT contracts,
and as a result of my experiences I continually update my 10 Commandments. In
this video with I revised the 9th Commandment - "Internet and Cloud Computing
Are Different"....here are all 10 Commandments.
1st Commandment - No IT Project is
ever completed on time
2nd Commandment - No IT Project is ever complete
3rd Commandment - If you cannot see the software, it does not exist
4th Commandment - New versions of operating systems never work
5th Commandment - There are no Industry Standards
6th Commandment - Do not buy brand new hardware
7th Commandment - Do not buy brand new software
8th Commandment - Sales people have answers to every question
9th Commandment - Internet and Cloud Computing are different
10th Commandment - Individuals who negotiate contracts are never around later
After I blogged my 10 Commandment some IT friends offered
Commandments #11 and #12 as follows:
11th Commandment - Any IT Project
with its own name is doomed to fail!
12th Commandment - Pick a Scapegoat before the IT Project who will never be
invited to meetings!
Any suggestions for more IT Contract
