I find it difficult to believe that "Competent Staff" ranks so low. I also find it interesting (not necessarily good or bad) that this list seems to support what's currently en vogue as far as development methodologies go. That is to say, the above table looks an aweful lot like a checklist for agile methods.

    Even with the very best people most projects will foul up without user involvement, management support, decent requirements, etc.

    More like a list of the things that agile methodologies try and address. For example the agile-folk approach to getting a "Clear Statement of Requirements" is rather different from that of the non-agile folk :-)

    It is worth reminding that this is a list of relative importance of the identified factors - Nothing on this list should be considered as unimportant in the success of an IT project, but rather the weighting is a reflection of relative importance within these factors alone. It should be noted too that none of these factors are methodology specific - Indeed some of these success factors have been identified by other contributors to this thread and are consistent across not only software development methodologies, but also distinct project management and risk management methodologies.
