re: Federal CIO Urges Bold Vision For Government IT
Based on the article, perhaps the problem is Mr. Van Roekel, himself. Let's look at his history. "VanRoekel recounted his experience working at Microsoft when a major software product launch he oversaw was recalled because of unforeseen problems. " Is this a habit, to go through software development requirements/processes and not address the "unforseen problems". I'm sorry, it's up to him to provide leadership in this area, 3 years ago, not in hind sight. Is Van Roekel even qualified for this high visibility job? It sounds like the stakeholder requirements were and may still be incomplete.
