yet another soft proj fail

The FBI's Virtual Case File project has joined the annals of the "Why Software Projects Fail".


There wasn't a complete set of defined VCF requirements when the original contract was signed in June 2001 (the requirements were solidified in November 2002).

The contract was based on hours worked -- cost plus an award fee.

The FBI lacked skill sets in qualified software engineering, program management, and contract management.

There was a high turnover in program managers and Chief Information Officers.

The FBI underestimated the complexity of interfacing with our legacy system, of addressing our security needs, and of establishing an enterprise architecture.

Классика =(

What to do?

you have site designed in a dark theme, saying dark background, white font.
By default google toolbar autocomplete cracks html for inputs or selects containg "email" "name" "address" and other buzzwords and changes background to yellow. As a result when visitor fills form, he enters text as white on yellow and can not easy validate his input
What to do?
