Recent research conducted by credible companies such as the Standish Group, McKinsey & Company, Gallup, Geneca, and PMI, all point to very poor track track in project success! Here is a synopsis of their findings. Chances are that your projects are suffering from the same underlying root-causes of failure.

The Standish Group 2015 CHAOS Report* showed that out of all 50,000 projects in the study, 71% failed to meet these three criteria: on time, on budget, and with satisfactory results. The problem is even higher for big projects. Medium-sized projects failed at 91% and large projects at 94%.

An article in InfoQ explains the Standish Group CHAOS survey results. It shows that project failures come from the following five (5) areas:

  • Lack of executive support. Financial and emotional backing is missing.
  • Missing emotional maturity. Behaviours of how people work together is weak.
  • Poor user involvement. Decision-making and information-gathering process is not there.
  • No optimization. Structured means of improving
  • No optimization. Structured means of improving business effectiveness is not executed.
  • Not enough skilled staff. Highly proficient people are promoted or retire.


Top Seven Project Management Statistics on Failure: 

  1. 70 percent of projects fail. [source: 4 PM]
  2. 17 percent of IT projects go so badly, they threaten the existence of the company. [source: McKinsey & Company in conjunction with the University of Oxford]
  3. Only 2.5 percent of companies successfully complete 100 percent of their projects. [source: Gallup]
  4. 57 percent of projects fail due to breakdown in communications. [source: IT Cortex]
  5. 73 percent of respondents admit that their projects are either always or usually “doomed right from the start,” including 27 percent who always feel this way. [source: Geneca]
  6. 75 percent of respondents lack confidence in project success. Fuzzy business objectives, out-of-sync stakeholders, and excessive rework are key culprits. [source: Geneca]
  7. Only 26 percent of all projects succeed. [source: PMI]


According to Dick Billows at, Organizations that consistently succeed with projects perform well at every level in the project management process:

  1. They control the initiation of projects; planning, approving and monitoring projects based on the business value those projects produce.
  2. They manage the pool of project resources just as they manage their capital budgets; allocating people’s time and money to projects based on the payback.
  3. They follow a consistent methodology for all projects; holding people accountable for measurable achievements.

    I do not know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However think of if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Great blog!

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, terrific blog!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could
    be giving us something informative to read?

Appreciate your turning out to be well thoughtful and also for making a decision on variety of cool areas most people are really eager to know about. My personal sincere apologies for not saying thanks to you sooner.
