Top 10 reasons your software project is doomed!

Came across an interesting post by Dare Obasanjo that lists 10 signs that your project is doomed to fail. Here are his top 10:

  1. Trying to do too much in the first version
  2. Depending on unproven technology
  3. Competing with an existing internal project
  4. Understaffed team
  5. Designing a complex solution for the sake of it
  6. Schedule Chicken (you’ll have to read the post)
  7. Scope Creep
  8. Second System Syndrome
  9. No Entrance Strategy
  10. Tackling a problem you don’t know how to solve.

We’ve all been there, and I’m sure you can relate some of the points above to one of more project you’ve been involved in. Read the full post
