This week's free ITP Thursday Live webinar features a talk and Q&A with Greg James, head of the major business transformation project at Inland Revenue. What went right, what went wrong, and how on earth do you manage a project this large?

The Inland Revenue transformation project is quite possibly the largest technology-related business transformation project ever in New Zealand and aside from the sorts of teething issues you'd expect of a project of this scale, appears to have been a great success.

Greg James, Inland Revenue's Deputy Commissioner, Transformation will run through how they tackled it and share some unique insights and war stories about the transformation programme. This is a great opportunity to find out more about how the transformation is tracking, plus gain insights about managing a major transformation programme.

As always, the Thursday Live Webinar will kick off with the TechBlog crew talking through the big stories of the week, and finish with an extended Q&A with Greg James.
