The best way to sabotage IT Projects is to layoff the wrong people...

Projects often fail when key people leave the project early in its lifetime.” Companies’ modern habit of laying off senior and, thus, higher-paid workers -– such as senior developers –- in favor of less experienced, lower-paid workers. It doesn’t make sense, because the more experienced people take a humongous amount stability, experience with them that usually isn’t available any other place. That hurts a project and hurts a company.

The time lost due to less experienced workers’ mistakes and learning curve probably negates the savings in salaries paid.In a poor economy, companies often make hasty and project-wrecking decisions. Besides layoffs, the recession is leading to other foolhardy cutbacks. It seems obvious that skipping testing is a path to software project failures.
