A long time ago, in a galaxy not too far away, the very first CHAoS Report published by the Standish Group generated worldwide attention by its claim that 40 percent of iT projects failed and that these failings were costing the uS economy 140 billion dollars each year. Ten years later, matters had improved somewhat with only half as many projects failing, but worryingly 53 percent were late, over-budget or not meeting their objectives. Now, within a mere five years, the number of failed projects is back on the rise, the 2009 Standish Group CHAos report indicates that nearly 25 percent of projects are doomed.

The quality of application delivery is at the heart of many of the challenges faced in iT projects, and this paper reviews some of the most common pitfalls and pain points that often beset development projects. With the help of Yoda, obi Wan and others from the Star Wars cast, we will learn how best to avoid these challenges and deliver your projects on time, on budget and most importantly with quality.

“Travelling through hyper- space ain't like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star, or bounce too close to a supernova and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it? ”

The Black Hole No. 1: Walking before you crawl Obi-Wan: How long will it take before you can make the jump to light speed? Han Solo: Travelling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star, or bounce too close to a supernova and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it?

It is natural to focus on the eventual goal; the application that will be built and that will deliver the projected business benefits. However, it is equally important to focus on the quality of that deliverable, right from the project's inception. Fail in this and you will face abandoned projects, missed deadlines and an application that may be implemented but will forever after be associated with instability and high maintenance costs.
