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:
|Executive Management Support
|Clear Statement of Requirements
|Smaller Project Milestones
|Clear Visions and Objectives
|Hardworking, Focused Staff
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.
