Consider this:

  1. On average, about 70 percent of all IT-related projects fail to meet their objectives
  2. Nearly half of respondents reported at least one project failure in the past year
  3. Steve Ballmer (CEO of Microsoft) stated 35% of IT projects fail
  4. 35% of all requirements change within the duration of any given project
