In the book, Consumption Economics: The New Rules Rules of Tech, the authors share some horrifying stats. First...that the effective usage rate of enterprise software is 50%. Yikes. Second...that only 15% of enterprise software projects are rated successful by IT execs. Double yikes! Can you relate? Dave Shanley, VP of Analytics at Jama Software, came by the studio at the Nice Work podcast to talk to Lacey about this. Dave told us one of the reasons for these failed software projects is that no one is communicating the why. "It's amazing to the see the gap where people are building products, but they are not enabling the team to fundamentally understand the why."
