Question and answer
What factors contribute to IT project failures? What is management’s role in avoiding or minimizing these potential failures?
A number of factors are involved in any particular project failure, some of which interact with each other. Here are six of the most important reasons for failure. 1. [ Lack of User Involvement Lack of user involvement has proved fatal for many projects. Without user involvement nobody in the business feels committed to a system, and can even be hostile to it . 2. Long or Unrealistic Time
Scales Long timescales for a project have led to systems being delivered for products and services no longer in use by an organization. 3. Poor or No Requirements Many projects have high level, vague, and generally unhelpful requirements. 4. Scope Creep Scope is the overall view of what a system will deliver. Scope creep is the insidious growth in the scale of a system during the life of a project.5. No Change Control System Despite everything businesses change, and change is happening at a faster rate then ever before. So it is not realistic to expect no change in requirements while a system is being built. 6.Poor Testing The developers will do a great deal of testing during development, but eventually the users must run acceptance tests to see if the system meets the business requirements. ]
