Why do you think projects fail?

Again on the project failure?  Yes.  Why?  Trying to head it off at the pass.  Source, The Bull Report.

Failure_Cause_Survey.264

Fifty-seven percent of failures are due to bad communication.  What’s that?  Poor grammar?  No.  Not enough meetings?  Doubtful.

It’s about PMO.  A hired gun?  Perhaps.  An advocate who will manage the vendor on your behalf.  What’s the rest of the hired gun’s job description?  All the blue stuff in the graph..

The good news is that being a bad dresser will not hurt the project.

  1. I agree with your assessment. After 10 hospitals and more than 75 implementations, if there is not a clear message that is supported and reinforced by leadership then the project is doomed.
