15% of IT projects have a cost overrun of 200% and a schedule underrun of 70%. That’s scary, right? Maybe that sounds familiar to some of you. Projects can be scary. Projects are risky because they’re trying to make change happen. Every project has its ups and downs. We are the most vulnerable person when projects go wrong. You should be afraid. Fear of your projects failing is a good thing. It makes you more likely to do everything necessary to make your projects less frightening.
