Why IT Projects Fail

Early warning signs to help you recognize and address problems before catastrophic failure occurs.

Just as a bad software choice can cause serious problems for your business, the lack of a clear policy on how tech projects should be managed can be a drain on precious resources.


The City and County of San Francisco Committee on Information Technology (COIT) created a technology project management policy to make sure that all departments adhere to widely recognized project management methods when implementing new tech projects. This policy requires that projects follow best-practice techniques and management standards such as PRINCE2 and PMBOK.


IT managers can help keep costs down by creating similar policies that promote the use of established methods for managing, acquiring and deploying new tech projects.
