Get the facts right

  • The failure rate of IT Projects can be alarming; per Gartner, approximately 74% of IT projects fail, are late, or go over budget.
  • META GROUP REPORTS that a staggering 55 percent to 75 percent of all CRM projects fail to meet their objectives.
  • On average, about 70 percent of all IT-related projects fail to meet their objectives, so CRM’s failure rate — along with the appalling 70-percent failure rate for ERP implementation projects and the shockingly high 70-percent failure rate experienced by those implementing SCM (supply-chain management) — is about as distressing as a 70-percent failure rate for a hitter in baseball.
  • Don’t be a statistic in your organization.


  • Successful project management is about managing risk. One of the most common ways of bringing together people from different backgrounds and often different enterprises to achieve project success is to use a formal project management structure (PMS).
  • This makes sure everyone understands how the project is organized and what to do next.
  • The best PMSs also aid project planning and give project managers early warning of time overruns and scope creep.
  • Two of the best-known PMSs are Projects in Controlled Environments
  1. PMI, from the Project Management Institute in Pennsylvania, United States
  2. PRINCE or PRINCE2, originated by the U.K. government

PMI (Project Management Institute)

  • The Project Management Institute was founded in 1969 in Pennsylvania, United States.
  • It has developed a Member Code of Ethics for those involved in project management, and administers project management training and certification.
  • The PMI methodology is contained in its publication “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge” (PMBOK).
  • The institute claims a membership of more than 420,000 in 125 countries, covering different professions including IT.
  • The institute aims to provide a controlled, integrated approach to project management through the certification, education, research, awards, publications and professional standards that it administers.

  • The PMBOK splits project management into five Process Groups and nine Knowledge Areas.
  • The Process Groups cover
  1. initiating
  2. planning
  3. executing
  4. controlling and
  5. closing a project.
  • The Knowledge Areas describe the additional skills that project managers need to help them to manage a specific project.
  • These include cost management, quality management and procurement management.
