Does our IS education approach the ever present user and CIO questions of: Why will it cost so much and take so long? How can I be sure this will be one of the 50% that succeed rather than the 50% that fail? Do we know the answers to: How can we improve BSIS student recruiting? Who should be our MSIS Students? Will the 10% reduction in project failures each decade continue? Will this rate continue past 50% and if so, why?
