According to the Standish Group's 2009 CHAOS report, 68% of projects failed, 44% of projects were late, over budget, and/or had fewer than the required features and functions, and 24% were cancelled prior to completion, or delivered and were never used. With statistics like these, it's just a matter of time before you're dealing with a project that is spiralling out of control. How do you get things back on track? This article walks you through a straightforward seven-step process for analyzing the project problems, developing a solution, and bringing your project back under control.
