Five common causes of project failure.
- Lack of co-ordination of resources and activities.
- Poor staff management, including motivation.
- Lack of communication with interested parties, leading to products being delivered which are not what the customer wanted.
- Poor estimation of duration and costs, leading to projects taking more time and costing more than expected.
- Inadequate planning of resources, activities and scheduling.
- Lack of control over progress so projects do not reveal their exact status until too late.
- Lack of quality control resulting in the delivery of products which are unacceptable or unusable
