Many reasons like: lack of experience, Not follow ethical and responsibilities tips, Not follow communication management procedures, lack of PM skills, Not all stakeholders were identified, lack of management knowledge plan, not follow information management system, not all requirements were collected and its very important to create WBS and estimate cost and time to prepare baselines,...etc.
they didn't take the time to understand what success looks like and focused on minutiae.
Tamer mentioned most of the reasons of why project managers are failed.
Addition to that:-
The projects are not aligned to business and strategy, no business values,Absence of leadership skills,Absence of management support (key stakeholder like sponsor).
and remember the English Idiom which saying
"go BIG or go Home" = the statement which mentioned by Kiron.
Thank you sir for your input, appreciate your time.
I Certainly appreciate your time as well, and nonetheless your valuable input.
I have failed when I expected people to do what they told me they were going to do and I didn't follow up. 9 times out of 10 it is someone not on the project team, but a stakeholder that needs to do something for us to move the project along. They have other duties and getting things done for the project isn't always their first priority. In some cases, they don't really want the project to go forward. So my not following up and just expecting them to do their part has forced me to reevaluate always being the helpful servant leader. Sometimes you got to be the guy who sends daily high priority emails to someone while cc'ing their boss and boss's boss.
Agree with Tamer! Many reasons for failure!
A very important factor for project success or failure is the high management support for the PM. don't forget politics it's also a high and influence factor
The difficulty of managing different interests of the project from various project stakeholder groups and individuals.
I think most of the problems are related to poor communication and processes.
