Even the best Project Managers/Business Analysts know that there are far too many outside influences to prevent the occasional failed project. Many projects have failed badly and become very costly to the organizations concerned but was it the PM/BA? A Project Management Systems (PMS) is expected to help project managers and the team members to manage their projects more effectively and reduce the risks of failure, does it really? Does the PM / BA use the unsuccessful project as a valuable learning opportunity to investigate, document, and share the reasons for the unfortunate event?
In this presentation we will examine the typical problems in a failed project, the PMS, the organization and other areas of ineffective project management. Understanding what is a failed project and options for establishing improvement processes, instituting checks and balances procedures, and implementing other types of reforms and innovative changes.
