Why Is Project Management So Important To An Organization? and Three Reasons Why Projects Fail?

Why Is Project Management So Important To An Organization? and Three Reasons Why Projects Fail?

1. Strategic Alignment

Project management is important because it ensures what is being delivered, is right and will deliver real value against the business opportunity.

2. Leadership

Project management is important because it brings leadership and direction to projects.

3. Clear Focus & Objectives

Project management is important because it ensures there’s a proper plan for executing on strategic goals.

4. Realistic Project Planning

Project management is important because it ensures proper expectations are set around what can be delivered, by when, and for how much.

5. Quality Control

6. Risk Management

Project management is important because it ensures risks are properly managed and mitigated against to avoid becoming issues.

7. Orderly Process

8. Continuous Oversight

Project management is important because someone needs to be able to understand if everyone’s doing what they should.

Project management is important because it learns from the successes and failures of the past.


Three Reasosn Why Projects Fail

(1)   Poor Sponsorship.  Just as there are important characteristics in team members, there are also critical qualities in good sponsors.  Sponsors tend to be in management level positions so they can remove barriers and obtain resources to get things done.  However, that doesn’t mean that they know what else they need to do to be a good sponsor.  Identify what behaviors you need in your sponsors, and then have a collaborative and respectful conversation with them.  Just like you, they appreciate knowing what they need to do to make the project successful!

(2)   Missing Stakeholders Agreement.  Every project requires a SMART objective – a Specific, Measurable, Agreed Upon, Results-oriented, and Time-based description of what it’s supposed to accomplish.  Once your project objective has been written, you must get agreement from your key stakeholders.  If you’ve done a good job of uncovering your stakeholders’ requirements, then getting agreement will be much easier.  If you haven’t then conflicts will arise throughout your project, which are usually symptoms of uncovered requirements.

(3)   Non Established Project Objectives and Incomplete Requirements.  Most people haven’t had training on how to elicit, clarify, and validate requirements, so it’s no surprise that this is the most common reason for project failure.  Since requirements make up the scope of a project, if you are missing requirements you are missing scope. And if you’re missing scope, your stakeholders will be unhappy with the deliverables. Make certain you identify all of the stakeholders and then get a complete, correct and clear set of requirements.

A common practice is to rush through the initiation and planning of a project and start executing before requirements are clarified and agreement is obtained:  This is a recipe for failure.  You certainly don’t save any time or money by producing deliverables that don’t meet expectations.  All three of the above pitfalls must be addressed at the start of your project.  Only then can you execute a well-crafted plan according to the needs of your stakeholders.  Slow down to go fast.

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every
    time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.

    Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

    With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks
    like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.

    Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Ie, 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, very good blog!

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking
    forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
