According to 2010 Survey only 47% of traditionally managed software projects are successful.
However, Red27 uses many methods and practices that greatly increase the odds of success!
- Red27 uses an agile/lean approach to development.
- Our process is to deliver the project as early as possible and iterate very quickly, often many times a day.
- We focus on local projects increasing communication and success rates. Geographically close teams are an average of 20% more successful.
- Furthermore, we keep the scope and teams small. Small teams have a much higher success rate, up to 83%.
Fast feedback with quick iterations saves money and increases success.
The sooner the omission is detected and corrected, the better. It's kind of like knitting a sweater. If you spot a missed stitch right after you make it, you can simply unravel a bit of yarn and move on. But if you don't catch the mistake until the end, you may need to unravel the whole sweater just to redo that one stitch. Why Software Fails
Local teams are up to 20% more successful.
success rate went down as the level of distribution went up Software Development Success Rates
Smaller teams = higher success rates; up to 83% for small agile teams.
the more disciplined approaches of agile and iterative were more effective for all team sizes than the less disciplined approaches of either traditional/classical or ad-hoc 2010 IT Project Success Rates
Discipline and best practices improve success rates.
greater levels of discipline that we see on agile/iterative teams, in combination with the reduced feedback cycle of those approaches, help to increase the chance of success Software Development Success Rates
