Why Projects Fail?

The ITIL guru provides these statistics in an effort to discuss the reason for project flops.

  • 17% of large IT projects that fall short of expectations threaten the existence of the organization
  • 45% of large IT projects run over budget
  • 44% of the time large IT projects fall short of expected deliverable´s

Culture is the culprit of higher failure percentages.

Projects fail:

  • “58% of the time due to inability to change mindsets and attitudes.”
  • “32% of the time due to lack of senior management support.”

Why have you found that your IT projects have failed? Discuss it more at The ITIL guru.
