yes, majority Project fails due to not applying and knowledge of PMI and the project professionals experience areas and not dealing with the requirements of project management tools and technique which are the basic requirement for project success.if we all perform the practice the knowledge of MPI and other project management practice then we get 100% get the result of project success.
Yes, most of the projects fails due to lack of project management knowledge/process gap.
different projects/organisations do follow different strategies to make it success.
Sample: Identify the project management process which can be performed in project. List the tools & techniques which would support processes and can be utilized, then prepare the plan for individual process based on project and organisation model.
Some projects should fail.
A project manager should try to make his project succeed, but if a project is going to fail, a project manager should identify that as soon as possible.
we never can ensure that all project will has a successfull end, but using the PMI knowledge, the tools, techniques and the expertise we are earning, we can make more projects with succesfull ending
1- The project should never have been started in the first place,
2- The project never had executive support
3- The project was not planned and executed well
4- The project team (if there ever was a team and not just a group) was not capable of the task
5- The scope was illogical or unreasonable--perhaps constantly shifting
6- Stakeholders were not conducive to change
Many projects fail because they are failures driven away from success. BTW, there are many projects that fail as well, using PMI principles and practices, and they fail because the project sponsor, leader, and team do not know how to be flexible in applying those principles to the reality of the situation. Just using PMI principles and practices is no guarantee of success.
I recently wrote a blog that partially addresses this topic and questions whether a failed project can be realiably predicted. Feel free to give it a read:
Scope, time, quality, stakeholder, risk are the main consideration by the project manager to do the ensure success of the project.
Tailoring and applying project management processes is important for every project. Every project and every organization cannot have all the processes. So, it is important to pick/tweak the processes based on project objectives and suitable for organization culture.
With preparing realistic plan and schedule, proper monitoring of project progress, taking corrective actions, managing changes and risks, engaging stakeholders could help you to be more closer to success.
