Successful Projects: What We Really Know

The Standish Group has published its annual CHAOS Report on the state of software development since 1994. The Report is often cited as a key metric for the industry's performance and progress and draws much attention. Analyzing the long-term trends provides an interesting perspective. On average only 29% of projects “succeed” and 23% “failed”. Over the past two decades, there has been little change in these headline results.
