Creating new software can be ferociously difficult. This is true no matter the size of your organization or the project at hand. Setbacks, misconceptions, scope changes, and budget overruns are just some of the impediments that plague developers.
With so many potential pitfalls, it’s easy to see why in-house software projects have such an abnormally high failure rate. In fact, according to one estimate, “only 34% of projects finish on time and only 42% come in on budget.” Going further, a different study suggests a whopping “70% of the companies polled reported having at least one project failure in the last year.”
A coworker recently asked me to take notes at a company meeting. I answered by saying yes, but just to clarify – not because I’m a woman. Fitting in a specific role or category has been something I’ve fought against my whole life, but times are changing (thank goodness). Luckily this coworker wasn’t a sexist or misogynistic male trying to establish dominance over the new female, but a leader utilizing their resources to the best of their ability. You see, I was the new employee, and like it or not I had a long way to go in learning a new role.
A passionate software developer never stops learning. Over time, the continued curiosity of a passionate developer enables them to solve problems more quickly, write code more efficiently, and build solutions more creatively – all while adapting to ever-changing technologies. As they continue to grow their technical know-how, some develop into highly successful software developers. However, if they are anything like me, the skills that made them a successful developer may not have prepared them for mastering the potential world of leadership.
