If project expectations are ambiguous in any way, what was initially seen as a small piece of work could become huge, taking up valuable time and resources. It is necessary to fully outline all stakeholder requirements at the start of the project. Whether the requirements were to install a new IT system, build a bridge or implement new processes, your project needs to produce solutions that meet these requirements 100 percent.

Project failure is an issue that seems to dog IT like no other. Be it government or private sector business, project failure has an enormous impact, costing billions of dollars every year. Too often, folks ignore the signs of imminent failure until there's nothing left to do but put a project out of its misery. With that in mind, we’ve compiled this list of early warning signs to help you recognize and address the problems before catastrophic failure occurs.
