Defining IT Project Failure

Projects – especially IT projects fail! In many cases IT projects fail more often then they succeed. Reports by Gartner, Butler, Forrester Research and AMR all point to disappointment. The above failure data is troubling and sends a strong signals that much room for improvement exists. The data variances reported by the different agencies potentially indicate that the word failure is ambiguous and is defined differently depending on what character you played in the software implementation process. It is for this reason that Paul Hart and I sat down earlier this week to help define what makes an IT Project Fail.
