Construction projects are complex and no matter the size, there are risks of cost and deadline overruns. IT focused projects are no exception. Harvard Business Review states that at least one in six IT projects turn into a Black Swan with a cost overrun of 200%. A PWC study published on Forbes stated that there was an estimated $50-150 Billion in lost revenue from failed IT projects.

On this episode, I turn to Rick Stuart, Vice President, Security Solutions - Technology Center of Excellence with Vision Technologies. Rick shared with me some of the common pitfalls that cause a project to go off the rails and then shares ideas on how to avoid these on your next IT/Low-Voltage project. We even talk on one of my favorite topics, company culture.

Rick has over 25-year background in security operations spans surveillance systems, security needs assessments, project management, sales leadership, IT network design, and emergency management. He currently spearheads daily operations for Vision’s growing security integration business.

Rick is also a Commercial, Multi-Engine Instrument Pilot, an Airframe and Powerplant mechanic, and Officer in the USAF Auxiliary. Thank you for listening and please take a moment to subscribe, rate, and review our show on your favorite podcast app and YouTube.
