Phil Culhane started developing the CT tools and methodologies in the late 1990s with Christina Marie Comeau while they were employees of a leading Canadian systems integration firm. Both had extensive experience with Information Technology implementation projects, and both knew that most implementations were failures – whether due to time, budget, outcomes or all three.
From an undying curiosity around that basic fact, CTLabs was born. They did extensive research, first to confirm the number of projects that failed (the Standish Group holds that over 70% of large implementations are failures or “challenged”) and the elements that led to the success or failure of a given project. Their analysis determined that neither the processes nor the technologies were the failure points, but that the greatest determinant of success or failure was the people factor.
CTLabs emerged and has transformed over the years as our projects progress and we branch into new
