Delayed or failed IT projects are costing Irish business and public sectors millions of Euro while the adoption of agile development is a solution for some but not all. This warning was made today at the PM Summit in Dublin by Terence O’Donnell, head of project management, Auxilion, part of Irish owned I.T. Alliance Group.
The importance of the topic was highlighted recently in a study by the PM Summit which found that nearly 20% of projects failed costing Irish companies on average €580,000.
“Many Irish organisations are now fully embracing the benefits of agile project management and dispensing with traditional methods. But there is a danger of throwing out the baby with the bath water,” said Mr O’Donnell, former professor of Project Management in UL and former president of the Irish PMI Chapter.
