A second post on project management, not so far from the first.
As written in this post, if current methods reassure people, they obviously show their limits. At a matter of fact :
- KPMGâ€™s survey results which contrasted 2005 with 2003 revealed the following:
- There was an 81% increase in the number of projects globally
- There was an 88% increase in project complexity globally
- There was an 79% increase in project budgets globally
- The Standish Group survey results for 2004 revealed that only 35% of Information Technology projects were deemed to be successful as measured by being within their original budget, on schedule, and delivering all user requirements satisfactorily
- Ernst & Young and numerous others state that there are three categories of Project Management issues:
- People-related issues which on average represent 80%
- Process-related issues which on average represent 10%
- Technology-related issues which on average represent 10%
- Oâ€™Neillâ€™s 1999 study results revealed that on average the typical Project Manager spends 70% of his time on Non-Value-Added project activities
