Most organizations do a poor job of executing application projects, because IT focuses on the mechanics (time, budget) of a project. However, the “value” of the application is the key metric and the responsibility of the business. Task ownership throughout an application's life cycle requires educating and involving the business sponsors and project leads. This CIO Corner focuses on using the RACI model to define ownership and hand-offs through an application's lifecycle, and it includes a questionnaire to identify areas for improving an organization's portfolio management.
