Why do software projects go wrong?

Rarely because:

The technology is wrongSoftware is faultyThe supplier is evilThe supplier is incompetentThe supplier is too smallThe contract is weakThere wasn’t enough rigorous methodology

Actually because

Defining benefits is difficultDecision-making in charities is complex and slowMost of us are too busy with business as usualIts hard to face the truth sometimesPeople – not methodologies – are what achieve success
