Requirements and Bridging the Silos (Part 1 of 3)
by Andrew Hayward
Sixty to eighty percent of software projects fail or are delivered long after original deadlines and over budget. This failure rate is in large part due to the fact that large organizations, and the industry as a whole, promote and actually foster a work environment that segregates the different groups responsible for software project delivery. These segregations, or silos, limit the visibility and effective communication and cooperation between the participants in the development effort.
In this three part series Mr. Andrew Hayward addresses why these project organizational silos exist and the problems they present, how to remedy some of the challenges through effective communication, improved visibility and complete traceability, and a set of recommended practices to improve collaboration and communication leading to increased project success.
In the first part of this series Mr. Hayward demonstrates why requirements for a project must be communicated and understood across all project organizational silos.
