The need for IT project management

The Herdings Cats blog had an article:

CEO/COO/CIO’s not confident in IT Project Managers, really?

In a number of companies, particularly in small- and medium-sized busineses, CxOs do not like project management (PM). On the PMForum there is a report that while CxO’s see PM as critical, they have little confidence in project managers.

PM guru Glen Alleman makes the observation that in many commercial IT organizations:
