Software projects fail all the time. All. The. Time. We all work with software in some way. We are users, testers, system librarians, content managers, web masters, occasional coders, or possibly suddenly a project manager, running a software evaluation process, and making decisions. In smaller libraries you may be all of the above. This session digs into the many ways technology projects can and do go wrong, and what we can do (or influence other people to do) to make projects actually succeed.
