Why There Are Failures In Building Software Products
A key to building a software product is having a detailed plan on how the software product is to be built. This plan will indicate how the software tools will be used to accomplish the objectives of the product.
Another key to building a software product is having the skilled software developers to build the software that is necessary. Effective software developers must be organized, logical, and be intelligent. Not having individuals with these skills will raise the probability of failure to 100 percent. If you do not have the essential individuals at the beginning of a project you may be totally unlucky in finding these individuals later on.
It is not surprising that so many government contracts to build software products are failures since the current process does not require contractors in bids to provide a detailed plan on how the product will be built, and also does not provide information on the skills of the software developers that will build the software product.
