IT projects frequently fail. Depending upon which industry you belong to , the failure rate of large projects is reported as being between 70%-80%. Because of the natural human tendency to hide bad news, the real statistic may be even higher. This is a catastrophe.

Many of the reasons have less to do with technology and more to do with failures to communicate and accept accountability, this reports Dennis McCafferty at CIO Insight in his intresting post .Some of key causes are..

  1. Leaving users out of discussions regarding prototyping and application design.
  2. Leaving infrastructure poorly defined and allowing IT workers to come up with their own approach to tools and programs.
  3. Letting users delay projects by constantly requesting tweaks.
  4. Getting wedded to a platform and refusing to ensure necessary training and support to transition to new ones.
  5. Getting stuck in the weeds of a project rather than leading the team through it.
  6. Allowing incomplete or poor documentation.
  7. Ignoring poor data quality.
  8. Falling back on jargon rather than communicating clearly with stakeholders.
  9. Agreeing to unreasonable deadlines.
  10. Letting interpersonal skills slip.
