An excellent article. I think it is important to say one of the issues skirted here is the oft-overlooked bias frequently encountered of both I/T and business teams being uncomfortable with the required iterative (experimental) approach. To succeed, both project planning/management and stakeholders have to understand, be comfortable with, and support the notion of iterative cycles. Often I have seen the lack of stated support along this avenue be one of the largest threats to success in analytic projects. I'm inclined to believe there must be specific discussion around this topic to ensure all stakeholders understand the iterative cycle is a standard part of the process - much like a Deming quality cycle - not an admission of failure in the prior iteration.
