Achieving Successful Program Execution: A Research-Based Approach
July 8, 2021
Hosted by William Ulrich
Guest Jim Johnson
Why do projects fail, or fall well short of their original goals? That is the topic that this episode of The North Star will explore. Jim Johnson, researcher, author, inventor, and Standish Group Chair, will join William Ulrich to share what he has learned over the past three decades on this topic. Jim is the author and researcher behind the widely quoted Chaos Report. He will share his insights into the report’s findings based on 25 years of data into failed, challenged, and successful projects, discussing why some projects fail, where others succeed. The Chaos Report has consistently shown that roughly only one third of projects have historically been successful. Jim will also discuss the concept of decision latency and its effect on project performance. In addition to latency, Jim will discuss team maturity, scoping challenges, user involvement, complexity, and a host of other project performance factors. He will also share what he sees as a way to shift historically poor project performance to more positive trends based on his latest work, which involves implementing software without using project management. Join the discussion as Bill and Jim explore the project deployment challenges that have plagued so many organizations around the globe over the past three decades.
