Ten PDT consultants would be needed at a cost of $3 million. The software packages plus hardware and middleware were estimated to cost a total of $1 million more. Not counting the value of the time of internal resources, the total project cost would be over $4 million, including what had been spent so far.

Unrealistic Assumption #1: The Environment Will Remain Stable during the Project The waterfall-oriented methodology that PDT employed made a hidden assumption that the business environment would remain stable while the project was under way. The underlying logic behind the approach was that the consultants would define the problem, develop a solution, and then figure out how long it should take to put in place. This is a logical way to attack problems in a highly stable environment where there is time to make the planned solution work before it becomes obsolete.

We recognize that not all organizations that undertake IT projects are businesses; some are government agencies or not-for-profit entities. The term business process will be used, however, since the concept of business process reengineering has become so popular in recent years.

Management principles do not take the place of good development practices.
