Even after utilizing the collective software development experience of hundreds of software companies and software experts over the years, across the globe, a large chunk of "software projects still fail big time". So the big question is - why does a software project fail, if at all?. REASONS THAT LEAD TO SOFTWARE PROJECT FAILURE.
NOT ENOUGH TIME
Usually, the final date is determined before the project begins and is non-negotiable. It leads to getting started impetuously on the assumptions, such as the sooner you start coding, the sooner you'll end.It is always a hasty decision and a wrong approach. It is critical to invest time in creating an attractive and simple design. Lack of interesting design causes the suspension of the development phase. When this happens, budget and precious time are burned at a rapid rate.
Many projects have a lowest price most successful candidate policy, or an unrealistically low budget, not based on the actual requirements. When this happens, everything slows down. Resources are slow to arrive, or never arrive; corners get cut and quality suffers.
There's an old saying, "never assume anything" and this is particularly the case for software projects. Good communication with the customer, users and especially the development team is critical to project success.
NEVER REVIEWING PROJECT PROGRESS
As a project progresses, things change and these changes can have a significant impact. It is important to keep examining the project progress so you can overcome challenges early, and warn stakeholders of possible delays and changes to the product.
