Reasons why Software Projects Fail
16.2% were "project successful"
(software projects completed on-time and on-budget among
American companies and governments)
52.7% were "project challenged"
(completed and operational but over-budget, over the time estimate,
and offers fewer features and functions than originally scheduled)
31.1% were "project impaired" (canceled)
Linked Elements in IT Projects
Time / Budget
Software projects are inherently complex, risky and require careful planning. Planning software development, estimates, staged development, requirements capture, and risk and change management control procedures, business case studies, user interface prototypes and overall project control. Inadequate capturing of customer requirements form one of the most common reasons for project failure.
Theare are may reasons why a project failed the following long list gives every thing in detail.
1 Lack of User Inputs /Insufficient User Involvement
2 Incomplete Requirements & Specifications:
3 Changing Requirements & Specifications:
4 Lack of Executive Support/ Absence/limited Executive Sponsorship
5 Technology Incompetence: or became absolute.
6 Lack of Resources
7 Unrealistic Expectations
8 Unclear Objectives
9 Unrealistic Time Frames
10 New Technology
11 Other resons
12. Expectations Mismatch
13. Poor Communication
14. Under-Skilled Project Managers
15 Inadequate Planning
16. Failure to Measure and Monitor Progress
17. Over-dependence On One Vendor
18. Inappropriate Technology
10 Functional: system does not perform needed tasks (correctly)
Users resist new system
Management resists new system
Technical problems: system does not work
You might think that pushing for an aggressive schedule would accelerate the work, but it actually delays it.
When faced with an unrealistic schedule, engineering teams often behave irrationally. They race through the requirements, produce a superficial design and rush ...
