Project results saw a marked improvement in 2013, with gains being registered by Planit Indexrespondents across the main methodologies.
As conducted last year, we again analysed respondents’ project outcomes together with their primary project methodologies to provide a view of relative success of these main methodologies.
Projects utilising Agile significantly improved their performance over the past year, more than half being completed on-time, budget and scope, up over 40 percent from 2012. Agile also reported the least over-time and budget projects (16 percent), down 11 percent, but did show the most project cancellations (4 percent).
