Post implementation reviews - A means of applying knowledge: lessons from a failed project

Jewels, Tony J., Baker, Jason L., & Underwood, Alan D. (2003) Post implementation reviews - A means of applying knowledge: lessons from a failed project. In Australasian Conference on Information Systems, 26-28th November, Perth W.A..


One of the defining properties of a project is that it has a definite start and a definite end, yet perceiving IT projects autonomously may actually contribute to their suggested low rates of success. A post implementation review (PIR) empowers us to make better decisions in future projects by using the lessons learnt from another. The process by which these lessons are captured might be described as a practical application of knowledge management (KM) principles. Using the experiences gained from a failed multi-national IT project, we will discuss how project knowledge can be captured and incorporated for use within a post implementation review, in order to increase the likelihood of success in future projects.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
