    It is certainly true that many large scale government technology projects run over budget, over time and underdeliver. This is a problem for *all* large scale technology programs. Very (very) few run to time and budget unless significant “interpretations” have occurred along the way.

    Rather than narrowly present this as a problem for government (which it is of course), we should consider this a problem for the industry.

    For many decades, the technology industry has been developing versions of “agile” and “lean” development approaches – it would be good to see these take hold in some of this “too big to fail” (but they still do) projects.
