A recent article on corporate collaboration experts "BoardRoom Metrics" (www.boardroommetrics.com) talks in general about some of the necessary requirements for running a successful IT project.

In the article, George Paradi discusses communication style, team selection, scope definition, and plain old common sense as the primary drivers for successful projects.

It is not the project methodology that ensures project success, it is the common sense application of the methodology to best fit the project and the project team.

-George Paradi

We also enjoyed our brief chat with George. As technologists, we grow up focused on tools and technologies, but later realize that human factors are always the trump card for any collaborative endeavour like software development. It was good to share stories with someone who understood that deeply.
