The Standish Group performed a study (The Standish Group, "Unfinished Voyages" (1996), http://www.standishgroup.com) on factors which contribute to the success of an IT project. These factors were subsequently ranked with respect to relative importance:
 
Success Criterion Relative Importance
User Involvement 19
Executive Management Support 16
Clear Statement of Requirements 15
Proper Planning 11
Realistic Expectations 10
Smaller Project Milestones 9
Competent Staff 8
Ownership 6
Clear Visions and Objectives 3
Hardworking, Focused Staff 3
Total 100
 
The results of this study go to suggest that project success is most likely to be achieved through involvement of project stakeholders, support of the project at an executive level and clear statements of requirements - Some pretty interesting stuff to remember when working on IT projects.

Update - Information about the Unfinished Voyages study can be found at http://www.standishgroup.com/sample_research/unfinished_voyages_1.php

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
