I can't believe that 70% of software projects fail. It's embarrassing. Something is fundamentally broken here. Left to their own devices, people have a way of over-complicating things. It really doesn't have to be that hard. The trick is knowing what to look for and what key factors to manage. The rest is noise.
Hi, I'm Craig. I'm currently building a company called Devshop.com. Devshop has a new approach to bringing software in on time, and therefore helps eliminate the total cost of late software.
I started coding when I was knee-high to a grasshopper and I have worked for 5 different software companies in the last 12 years, as head of product development.
In early 2004, I became very frustrated with the fact that general purpose project management methodology is not working for the software industry. My personal belief is that to solve this problem, we need to start focusing on specific types of projects, rather than relying on age-old one-size-fits-all practices and techniques.
