Evolutionary development of Project Management

At a recent conference, Capers Jones mentioned that IT in general is at a stage where doctors were in the late 1800's. - basically, IT (us) are killing more patients then saving and perhaps the patients would be better off without us.....mmmmmm. Is it true that IT's current evolutionary stage is at such an immature level? According to the Standish Group report, we are and with little progress being made in "saving the patient". Is the development pace so fast and the technology so 'bleeding edge', or the effort to create a website/program so difficult to cause such as level of failure? I don't see it. I see a lot of the same types of technology being implemented by various groups looking for the next great 'killer app'. So what is the issue then? and if we did improve our success rate would it really provide a clear business benefit? (some successful deliveries are still business failures). Just some thoughts to ponder.
