Top Ten Reasons For Project Failure
I just found the Top Ten Reasons For Project Failure. I must admit that this hits the nail squarely on the head! Excellent job. Every project that I have been on that fails has at least one of these characteristics. I love delivering projects and it makes a team feel great, but more times than not I'm palced in a position of failure and while I'm trying to stir the boat in the right direction (by talking with management), there's so much a developer can do in these types of organizations. One item that I think got left off was managers knowing how to manager developers. The best managers that I have had in the past have been ex-developers, but I don't think it's necessary for a manager to be an ex-developer to be a good manager. They just need to understand the needs of developers. Anyway, it's a great article to click on over to!
