Capers Jones, Vice President and CTO Namcook Analytics: “Roland Racko’s new book is aimed at software executives who have been unhappy about past software results in their companies…the book uses an interesting combination of specific questions that executives should ask combined with a useful set of graphic displays that show progress as a project unfolds. Questions are aimed at accomplishing certain important goals for software projects… Overall, I would say that Roland Racko’s new book will go far in increasing the success rates of important software projects and lowering the alarmingly high odds of software failure, delays, and cost overruns.”

“‘Timing Is Almost Everything’ is focused and clearly written. It’s a genuinely practical guidebook, and that in itself makes it unique and useful. Racko doesn’t waste, as so many business books do, hundreds of pages describing a well-understood problem before explaining a solution. He dives right in, describing a clear framework in plain language to immediately assess technical teams and project progress. This structure can help non-technical leaders to go beyond mere evaluation and actually influence the direction of projects to more positive outcomes. The book includes some simple but important questions executives need to ask and makes clear what the answers to those questions can tell them. Among a flood of self-help business books, I think that ‘Timing Is Almost Everything’ stands apart. It will be a difference maker for anyone expected to delivery complex technology successfully.” – Robert DelRossi

“Well written book that is bound to be helpful IF he can get the correct people to read it. While this was written for the senior, non-IT executive, there are many IT senior executives (and soon to be senior IT executives) who can benefit from this book. The most intriguing part, to me, was the proposed questions. These obviously show both a deep understanding of the subject matter but also an understanding of how the IT ‘service’ should fit in with the remainder of the business. Questions to IT employees about an IT product but without any IT buzzwords - brilliant.” - R White
