ISBSG, The International Software Benchmarking Standards Group, who define benchmark for software, has figures which indicate that 84% of development projects, not using scope management, exceed the budget, whereas 90% of the projects managed with scope management stay within their budgets. ISBSG figures also specify that projects implementing Scope Management cost 1/3 of traditional projects when comparing the development of the same size software. And Capers Jones, the world’s most respected within the area of metrics in software has discovered that software projects traditionally increase in scope by 2-3% a month.
