(Why are we) Still Getting IT Wrong?

In this year of 2014, it is more than five decades since the development of computer applications for use in business became widespread. After all of this experience, projects are still going live late / over budget / buggy or, sometimes, not even making it into production at all. How can this be?

In this presentation, Richard Taylor looks at some of the reasons for this, and suggests ways in which testers can push to eliminate them.
