PROJECT MANAGEMENT: Is Your Project Doomed to Fail?

You can find out using this simple "one-minute" risk assessment worksheet . The worksheet is based on the findings of a research project to analyze risks in software development (using data from senior IT managers).

Not surprisingly, the key software project risk drivers were found to be:

  1. Use of an inappropriate methodology
  2. Lack of customer involvement
  3. Lack of formal project management practices
  4. Dissimilarity to previous projects
  5. Project complexity
  6. Requirements volatility
