Back in April, I mentioned the article "The Digital Black Hole" by Jonas Palm. I've been re-reading the article and want to point out several of his graphics (figures).
First on page 2 (Figure 2) is "The Life Cycle of Digitization Projects." Palm has created this based on "The Life Cycle of Massive Stars." This graphic says much about how projects live and die! (And -- yes -- project do die.)
Then on page 11 are graphics that show the activities involved in digitizing materials and their percentage of the costs (Figure 13 & 14). While scanning takes the most cost, many people will be amazed at how much cost administration incurs. These graphics would be good to show project management when discussing what goes into a project and the costs associated with them. Although the graphics give no specific costs, they would help teams think about all of the costs that must be considered.
