information on Failed IS systems due to poor requirements
I am currently doing some research on failed Information systems projects with an emphasis on cases where poor or non existent requirement analysis and specification have been the underlying cause of failure.
I am having trouble finding the most current instances (most of the information available are for cases that are about ten years old.
I am looking for any information on where I can find up o date information, recent work in acadamia, white papers and if possible industry study. Any help would be apprciated
Re: information on Failed IS systems due to poor requirements
Not too sure if too many IT professionals would be willing let alone publish failures attributable to requirements gathering!
I don't know whether you can blame poor requirements as the sole cause for a project failure. Surely project management, design , development and test input would also be in the mix...
In my opinion, the onus should be on the whole development team to raise a red flag if the requirements or any other dev phase is not up to scratch!
