I am assuming that John Grant studied civil engineering, which was 
probably a requirement for working as a civil engineer with Brisbane 
City Council.

What is it with the IT industry that we have so many people in senior 
positions in industry bodies, vendors and user IT departments with no 
formal qualifications in Electronics or Computer Science?

I don't suppose there is relationship between this observation and the 
extraordinary number of large scale IT project failures?
