So many reasons for projects failure; the number of reasons can be endless.
Often there are many few resources are working on too many projects at that same time. In combination with that, managers don’t appear to have a catch on what their resources are doing, all of the time.
Many of peoples are work on a project and know to the project manager only by his & her communications. And they will know him through how his sound comes across over the phone and especially through how well written his emails are? If the project manager is not a clear apparent communicator, anarchy & confusion will chase.
Bad Stakeholder’s Management:
Stakeholder’s have an inherent interest in the project for good and sometimes to the impairment of the projects. It is the job project managers’, not only to recognize all of the stakeholders, but know how to control & communicate with them in timely manner. A communication plan management helps here.
Un-supported Project Cultures:
In this section, management distinctly did not completely understand; what it took to handle a project either in tools and using trained personnel staff. This is not readily solvable because it needs education of management or a culture’s shift.
Accidental Project Manager:
It is similar to but not definite the same as the un-supported project cultures. The trouble is, they often do not get training in the project management & may well lack of the social skills and the job calls for. Or so they stagger or often fail irregardless previous success.
Lack of Team Planning’s Session:
There is no more effective path to kick-off a meeting than to have the whole team come together for the planning’s sessions. This enables everybody to not only work together on project artifacts but also to fetter (bound) as a team & buy into the project.
Monitoring or Controlling:
Many of project managers will make a schedule & never update it. If they do, they will just fill in percent finished, which arbitrary number often is picked-out of the air through the team members. Better if they record the actual such as date started, work accomplished or estimate remaining work.
