Why is Six Sigma the way forward for Software Development and IT?
71 % of all IT projects fail to meet cost, schedule, or performance criteria
30% of software development project budget spent on fixing old bugs
25-30% total project failure rate
A higher percentage of budget spent on fixing buggy software, rather than on initial development
Mistakes, rework and scrap will add up to 40% of your total costs

With more budget being spent on fixing software than initial software development quality and efficiency is slipping. This has a worrying impact on your customer’s experience with your organization. For years this has been under the radar of wider quality improvement initiatives –

Now Lean and Six Sigma are poised to dramatically improve quality in IT and Software Development
