Software And IT Solutions Specialist Ian Howlett Featured On

Ian Howlett, veteran Project Assurance Manager and Oxford MBA, was recently featured in and other major online media outlets, including Yahoo!Finance, Bloomberg Businessweek, MarketWatch and many others.

London, England – July 28, 2014 – A feature story about author and software success expert, Ian Howlett, was recently seen on as well as the other major online publications such as Yahoo! Finance, The Boston Globe,, Los Angeles Daily News and MarketWatch, among many others.

Ian Howlett loves to connect his passion as a pianist with his work as a consultant to fellow entrepreneurs and senior business leaders. As a software success expert, Ian helps companies around the world to guide their software projects into successful ventures. Sometimes this is from the initial stages of writing the software, but is most often as an IT trouble-shooter, helping them get “unstuck” from a seemingly intractable problem and then maintain maximum efficiency as their business grows.

Howlett brings a unique array of professional experiences to his current work with individual clients. He began his professional career as a software developer for Unisys before starting up his first business as an IT contractor at 22. He then took a position at BUPA, the UK’s largest private healthcare company, analyzing surgeons’ performances and developing a then-cutting-edge “reverse auction” system for purchasing.

To help senior business leaders and entrepreneurs, Howlett has just launched his new book, with a long but perfectly chosen title: “How To Fix Your Software Project: The Plain English Guide To IT Project Turnaround For Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs.”

He identifies 26 major root causes of IT project failure. At the top of this exhaustive list are: Poor project management; Scope is too wide; Unrealistic expectations; Unarticulated project goals; Marketing Failure; and Wrong people on the project.

In the concise but comprehensive 169-page work, the author shows leaders how to turn their software projects from failure to success in seven simple steps. These essential strategies, explained in plain English rather than “tech geek” speak, are designed to help business people know exactly which questions to ask – and what actions to take – to get a sick software project back on track.

“When describing what I do, it really comes down to the phrase, ‘I’ve got your back’. No matter what particular service I am providing to a client, they always know that I have their best interests at heart, and that I will deliver what they want most: results,”  remarked Howlett.
