Projects fail when the reason why the project is being done isn’t clear, or is a good one.
Projects fail because when we hope that what it will deliver will be good. Fingers-crossed, yes?
We need to know what a project will deliver before we start it. This is known as a Business Case.
When we don’t have a Business Case, or when the Business Case doesn’t prove that the project will deliver the desired outcome, we start the project with a great deal of risk.
So if you’re involved in a project – any project – then ask yourself this: why am I doing this?
If you don’t know, then ask your manager. Chances are, they don’t know too.
