Reasons behind IT Projects Downfall
The success of any IT project mainly depends upon 3 things, Composition, Coordination and Distribution. A good composition of all processes and outcomes, then its better implementation and finally distribution, all in sequence and back to back are followed and thus presents a complete scenario. In case one of them falls, will directly or indirectly strike at and harm all management process resulting into declination and inadequacy of a particular IT project and the whole entrepreneur.
There are many reasons behind its failure but generally you need to focus on lack of governance, partiality and internal politics, lack of communication, unexpected upshots, blurry vision, lame employees with default and less inputs, cost, budget and financial hindrances, deadlines coordination, insubstantial and junk skills in managing and coordinating a project. All the prescribed points need your personal attention immediately to rest the downfall and to turn the situation. Sometimes best of best efforts lead to unsuccessful and worst result due to non-homogeneity in all tasks. Although every project is different but there are some general, common and concerned characteristics. An IT professional should be very much self-obsessed in every term so that a decision can be avail in the profit and benefits. Pessimism towards your task can also lead to bad outcome as it will never help you to come out with understood and genuine concepts and suggestions. You should be coward enough to face the contradictions and should stand with deep thought for its sake.
Being started with robust business, if you are facing unrealistic changes and challenges, like you are leaving minor issues and concerns, temporary business sponsorship, red herring stakeholders creating frustration in project by numerous reasons and many more, you are confirmed with its failure. Better drastic changes and immediate action taken, will help you in every possible way to save that trail off.
An IT project itself is linked with several people, which plays equal and important role in every manner. Ignoring one can be hard bitten to hold and move on and to confront. Besides all, self-analysis is also very necessary which will remind your where are you lacking and what actions are to be opt so that you can be sure, confident and loyal up to an extent. Care must also be taken after its launching, irregular accessing and unusual flow can create a conflict in the development race.
In the same context of this The Great “Rory Burke” has said-
“Project management can be defined as a way of developing structure in a complex project, where the independent variables of time, cost, resources and human behavior come together.”
