Today a commentary of Polo van der Putt was published in the Dutch magazine for Computer law (Computerrecht) with respect to a court decision on a failed IT-project.

For many years research shows that only 20-30% of IT projects is considered successful and 40-60% partly successful. Projects with a budget over € 10 million have a failure rate of above 60%. A lot has been published on the critical fail and success factors. Amongst the “big hitters” mentioned most, one can find unreal expectations, defective project management, lack of communication, problems that have been escalated too late and badly drafted contracts.
