Have you ever seen a software project go horribly wrong?
Perhaps I should ask, have you ever seen a software project go perfectly?
In the past 10 years, I have seen numerous software projects suffer, with unhappy clients. In some cases, after awkward unhappy phases, the project ended up launching and succeeding in the long run. In other cases, the project ultimately failed, not launching, or not being as significant as anybody wanted it to be, and eventually being phased out or replaced.
Many of the difficulties have been predictable, and with hindsight, they could perhaps have been avoided.
Here are five mistakes that I have repeatedly noticed which have jeopardised software projects:
1: Unclear Requirements
2: No effective ownership
3: Treating the dev team as a vendor
4: No long term plan
5: Spending it all up front
