re: Why Tech Projects Fail: 5 Unspoken Reasons
Overall, I agree with Coverlet Meshing's conclusions that misguided ROI expectations/calculations, self-serving accountability issues, and un-Agile projects are precursors to tech project failure. I also agree that monolith off-the-shelf tech companies have the potential to inhibit project success (and, long-term, stifle technology decision-making); on addendum I would suggest, however, is that not all outside partners are proverbial loaded guns. Agile, custom business technology shops can usher larger organizations through the murky innovation waters and deliver progressive software applications (sans licensing fees, etc.) that mirror existing workflows/culture, and solves business problems. Quick aside: this article is guided by the presupposition that all enterprise tech projects originate in, and are led by, IT. Increasingly, I've seen this trend change; more and more, "intrapreneurs" in marketing, ops, and other functions are taking the reins on new tech projects.
