3 LESSONS FROM PROJECT FAILURE
Any project that you plan to execute will have many elements to be controlled – budget, time, quality, people, stakeholders, requirements, scope-creep, and even a few “first-time” challenges such as implementing a BYOD work culture.
No wonder the project managers are bound to make mistakes in their projects, leading to its failure. And that’s probably why the rate of project failure is still very high.
Such a mire of elements can create a push and pull effect and develop problems in software development at various stages. These problems will naturally be the cause of project failures. Although as an astute project manager you can still deal with a failing project, but then sometimes project failure may just be inevitable. Instead of playing the blame game, it will help if you pick out key lessons from a project failure. So, what can we learn from project failures? To know check out the blog here.
Our highly demanded Technical Program Management Foundation Boot Camp is being held in February. It’s a 4 day program and open for enrolment here. This program is for those who are passionate about solution engineering, system design and effective communication. The 4 day classes will start from Saturday, Feb 8, 2014 – Sunday, Feb 16, 2014.
