It’s Not Just My Opinion

Posted by iammarchhare on 7 May 2009

Someone actually did a 5 part series of articles on “Why Software Development Projects Fail” that states a lot of what I have been telling people for years:  The need for the correct methodology, the need for enduser involvement throughout the length of the project, the need for special care when using distributed teams and the need for visual prototyping.

Although aimed at CIOs, it is a series that any consultant or project manager should read as a review.  Because, your CIO might not have read it.

I guess my only possible disagreement would be whether or not there really is a need for waterfall in today’s world.  However, I readily concede I’ve never worked for NASA, so perhaps it really does work there.
