The Evidence regarding Failed Projects

These pages are freely available without the need for registration or membership

The links in this zone are to publically available information on project failures, analysis of those such projects and advice regarding avoiding project failures

My observations are that the analysis of failed projects and most of the advice on how to avoid a failed project are sadly inadequate.

Most of the blame can be attributed to the requirements gathering approach. My view is that the real cause is the use of requirements to define the problem and solution.

This site explains my position and puts forward an alternative approach.
