Projects fail at a consistent and alarmingly high rate. However a new study offers some hope. It has managed to isolate 4 factors that are the difference between successful and failed projects.
The four factors that can make a project a success and a best-in-class are:
- Control requirements change
- Employ highly skilled people with good functional knowledge of the application domain
- Use tooling effectively
- Provide good project leadership
That’s according to a new study of “the Best and Worst in Class” projects from Quantitative Software Management.
Can you add any other factors that you feel play just an important if not bigger role in the success of a software project?
