the giant SAP rollout
"education minister Adrian Piccoli has refused to tell budget estimators how much the giant SAP rollout is likely to cost, if it's ever completed"
How could I ever guess this is what the story was about?
"Back in 2013, Accenture regarded the project as a success story."
I must be psychic, because somehow I just knew I would see their name here.
"The Auditor-General's report last year attributed the project's problems to ... and insufficient program and contract management."
Somehow I suspect there was loads of program and contract management. What was more likely lacking was people who knew what they were doing and who could see that this whole project was doomed to go this way once someone decided they wanted a single gigantic system that would do everything, including making the tea in the morning.
