I don't need someone else to generate stats that show why software takes longer to develop tahn estimated. I have 'sperience...

0) Lower than required skillset of devs

1) "Urget" requirement changes.

2) Devs that either have to make stuff up as they go, or have to wait for clarification because the requirement docs are crap.

3) Sales people insisting on "insignificant changes" to match new user stories.

4) Managers with no real software dev experience trying to "make their mark" on the project.

5) Someone in management fires all the local devs and outsources to a near-east country because "those guys will work for less", while completely ignoring the time/language barrier, not to mention the general (and PROVEN) lack of quality code they get in return.

6) Sh*t happens.
