53% of Traditional Projects Fail!

According to 2010 Survey only 47% of traditionally managed software projects are successful.

However, Red27 uses many methods and practices that greatly increase the odds of success!

  • Red27 uses an agile/lean approach to development.
  • Our process is to deliver the project as early as possible and iterate very quickly, often many times a day.
  • We focus on local projects increasing communication and success rates. Geographically close teams are an average of 20% more successful.
  • Furthermore, we keep the scope and teams small. Small teams have a much higher success rate, up to 83%.

Fast feedback with quick iterations saves money and increases success.

The sooner the omission is detected and corrected, the better. It's kind of like knitting a sweater. If you spot a missed stitch right after you make it, you can simply unravel a bit of yarn and move on. But if you don't catch the mistake until the end, you may need to unravel the whole sweater just to redo that one stitch. Why Software Fails

Local teams are up to 20% more successful.

success rate went down as the level of distribution went up Software Development Success Rates

Smaller teams = higher success rates; up to 83% for small agile teams.

the more disciplined approaches of agile and iterative were more effective for all team sizes than the less disciplined approaches of either traditional/classical or ad-hoc 2010 IT Project Success Rates

Discipline and best practices improve success rates.

greater levels of discipline that we see on agile/iterative teams, in combination with the reduced feedback cycle of those approaches, help to increase the chance of success Software Development Success Rates

We worked with Dusty Candland of Red27 Consulting for about 1.5 months on a project supporting development of a Java-based Web service using the Play! Framework. Dusty was very easy to work with. During and after the project's execution, he and Red27 were readily available to answer questions and help us fix bugs. Another important aspect of the consulting we did with Red27 was our need for a developer who understood how quickly things move and can change in a startup environment. Dusty did a great job of filling that role. He quickly adapted to multiple revisions of the project's specifications and integrated his work with our existing codebase. Omniar would choose to work with Red27 again.

It was a pleasure working with Dusty Candland of Red27 Consulting on fluidmeetingspaces.com. Being a small business it was critical that the project be completed on time and within our budget, Red27 helped make this happen while staying true to the vision and specifications of the project. Dusty was very responsive during the project and remains very responsive even after project completion. I always had a comfort level with Dusty that the projects success was as important to him as it was to me and the rest of our team.
