Prof. Carl Marnewick’s academic career started in 2007, when he joined the University of Johannesburg. He traded his professional career as a senior Information Technology (IT) project manager for that of an academic career. The career change provided him the opportunity to emerge himself in the question why IT/IS-related projects are not always successful and do not provide the intended benefits that were originally anticipated. This is currently a problem internationally as valuable resources are wasted on projects and programs that do not add value to the strategic objectives of the organization. It is an international problem where there is a gap between theory and practice and he is in the ideal position to address this problem. The focus of his research is the overarching topic and special interest of the strategic alignment of projects to the vision of the organizations.
