Henrico Dolfing
Hi, my name is Henrico Dolfing, and I help C-level executives with troubled projects.

I have worked as an independent project recovery consultant for over a decade. My expertise and experience with software development and technology projects, combined with a set of proven processes and techniques allow me to recover projects that are in critical phases on the verge of failure and lead them back to success.

You can read more about me and my background on my "About" page.

Project Failure Case Studies

I research technology project failures and then write case studies about them because it is a great way of learning from others' mistakes. This page here is an ever-growing collection of case studies I have written.


I have written a number of books. You will find an overview of them here.
