DevBots Blog:
Improving IT from Within
August 19, 2009 @ 10:08:40

On the DevBots blog recently Darby Felton posted a few suggestions of things that could be done to help improve IT organizations from the inside and promote a more healthy environment for everyone involved.

Lately I have been thinking about a few aspects of the information technology industry. Particularly, regarding software development, I am concerned that the following characteristics remain pervasive and detrimental to our industry: far too many software development projects ultimately fail, we tend to lack clear, rigorous standards and credentials that other industries typically employ, and our [lack of] adherence to ethics and professional conduct leaves much to be desired.

He addresses each of these, pointing out that a good number of IT environments have fallen into these issues and steps need to be taken to: reduce the failure rate of projects, hone down the staff to those that will turn out the best possible product and will uphold a good set of standards/ethics while they do.
