Secret wartime projects in areas such as code-breaking, radar and ballistics produced a wealth of ideas and technologies that kick-started the development of digital computers. This is the story of the people and projects that flourished in the post-war period. Their influence is still discernable deep down within today’s hardware and software.
Chris Yapp has blogged for BCS for 6 years on the future of technology and how the economic and social impacts of technical developments may play out. Covering a variety of topics, this collection of his articles provides a guide to the opportunities and possible pitfalls of technical progress and how it will change the world we live in today.
This book will empower experienced project managers and their business counterparts to understand and manage the risks of challenging business change projects. Providing principles and guidance, it shows project managers and owners how to guide projects home when mere excellence of technique or blind adherence to procedures would leave them at sea.
