IREM Part and Mold Design Guide (2005)[1] Four Common Reasons Why Projects Fail By Cynthia K. West, Ph.D., V.P. Project Insight Project Management Institute, Inc. (PMI) holds that all organizations perform two kinds of work: operational work and projects. Most organizations have experienced projects that did not end on time, were over budget, or changed in scope over time. Challenge #1 - Lack of Visibility of all Projects A common reason why projects fail is related to visibility. Executive Management Executives often complain that they do not have visibility into all current enterprise projects. Project Managers Project managers often put together a schedule and plan at the outset of a project. In fast paced environments, project managers are asked to work on several projects at one time. Project managers often lack visibility into all of the projects their resources are working on. Team Members The most frequently heard complaint from team members is that they lack visibility on a day to day basis about the tasks that they are supposed to work on. Summary

PMI UK Chapter ULI Reasons Why Projects Fail In a perfect world every project would be "on time and within budget." But reality (especially the proven statistics) tells a very different story. It's not uncommon for projects to fail. Even if the budget and schedule are met, one must ask "did the project deliver the results and quality we expected?" Have you ever seen a situation where projects begin to show signs of disorganisation, appear out of control, and have a sense of doom and failure? When projects begin to show signs of stress and failure, everyone looks to the project manager for answers. There are many reasons why projects (both simple and complex) fail; the number of reasons can be infinite. Even with the best of intentions or solid plans, project can go awry if they are not managed properly. During the course of managing a project, the project manager must monitor activities (and distractions) from many sources and directions.
