Avoiding Project Failure – Keys to Getting Your Project Back on Track


Projects that transform how a business operates are inherently high risk.  Roughly 70% of complex projects fail and of those that are “successful” more than 90% run over on time and budget.  It doesn’t have to be this way but how do you avoid becoming a statistic?

Even the most seasoned skiers can lose their path on a black diamond run, miss a key turn and take a hard fall. Whether a project goes off track a little bit or it leaps from green to red, you can find yourself wondering how you ended up facedown and, more importantly, how to get back on your feet. Is the project missing key resources? Was the plan right to begin with? Do the scope and focus of the project match current business goals? How will customers react to the outcome?
