I'm looking for concrete examples of cases where IT has enabled a project to proceed and hit deadlines. I want clear linkages between the technology in question and the actual work in progress. Ideally these should be advanced engineering or construction projects.
I am not interested in empty abstractions about productivity gains or management theory. People read the FT to escape that kind of blather.
I'm working towards a deadline of Friday 13 June, but the sooner I can identify relevant interviews the sooner this article will be complete. As a journalist, I always aim to bring my projects in well ahead of their deadlines!
*My formal commission is for article 6, Compressing Project Timelines. Can technology cure the curse of the extended project timeline? What has IT contributed to rapid development in a world plagued by cost overruns?
