881 Walt Whitman Rd, Melville, NY 11747 The Standish Chaos Reports show that a staggering 31.1% of software
projects will be cancelled before they ever get completed. Further results
indicate 52.7% of projects will fail because of cost overruns and/or specifications
are not met. The cost of these failures could easily be in the trillions

fee. Dinner included.
