Citizen Development and Digital Transformation [Infographic]


Technological advances means that much of the complexity of software development is being eliminated allowing citizen developers to help innovate, solve business problems and transform processes to automated, digital ones. The PMI Citizen Developer approach can help drive digital transformation by helping to avoid some of the past mistakes during transformation projects. Read on to see our infographic and some key stats on digital transformation:

  • 70% of digital transformations fall short of their objectives (Source: Boston Consulting Group)
  • 60% - 85% of digital transformation projects fail due to lack of good change management practice and technical skills to execute (Source: Siemens)
  • 56% of business projects delivered less value than expected, while 45% had cost overruns. Some 17% went so badly that they threatened the company’s very survival. (Source: McKinsey)

"Citizen development will form the next wave of business transformation. Technological advances such as AI are eliminating much of the complexity involved in software development, allowing non-specialists to create their own solutions and bring new products and services to market in unprecedented timeframes. This will democratize software development and turbocharge digital transformation efforts.” – Sunil Prashara, President and CEO, Project Management Institute
