It is a dirty little secret that complex enterprise solution projects fail more than half the time, often to the tune of 8 figures.

This isn't moving GUI widget from the left corner to the middle and something Agile is good at, but changing a data structure that is layered throughout 6 sets of services, for instance, one or two that the modeler may not even be aware of. This is where enterprise and data architects live and earn their pay, or fail and go to management to repeat their failures.
