What are the Common Reasons Why IT Projects Fail?
Gowtham Podapati, Student (MBA), India, Member
In my view, the common reasons for failure of IT projects are:
1. Lack of risk management
2. Lack of proper scheduling
3. Lack of communication
4. Lack of integration while going live
5. Lack of cost control
6. Addressing the wrong business requirements
7. Poor project governance
8. Environmental changes
9. Lack of scope management.
Any builds?

Hi Gowtham, thanks for sharing your views, I suppose the root cause of failure of IT projects is that there is a gap between the perceptions and concepts of the programmers/analyst team and the stakeholders requirements. It is very hard to translate business requirements to IT concepts.
