A lot of the things I have been writing about in the last few weeks that relate to process re-enforce my strong belief in the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid!). The story that Britan has apparently wasted US$ 24 Billion speaks volumes about our ability to over commit time and time again on outrageously large projects:
In 2002, the British government embarked on a $12 billion effort to transform its health-care system with information technology. But the country's oversight agency now puts that figure at $24 billion, and two Members of Parliament say the project is "sleepwalking toward disaster."
That someone decided to approve this in the first place is either:
  • Hubris
  • Stupidy
  • Proof that the more over ambitious and ridiculous your proposal then the easier it is to get a huge budget
The world is mad!
