Single Goal Set: A New Paradigm for IT Megaproject Success
September/October 2005 (vol. 22 no. 5)
pp. 48-53
C. Venugopal, Krysalis Consultancy Services
IT megaprojects often fail to meet user expectations. One reason might be that they chase too many goals. This leads to cascading problems that put undue pressure on the implementation teams and lead to eventual failures. Using a single goal or a single goal set for project implementation could lead to substantially higher success rates by focusing resources on meeting a project's overarching goals. SGS combines the flexibility and iteration of agile methods with the discipline of traditional planned methodologies.
