Failure predicted

Here is an interesting article about why big government IT projects fail so often, even more often than the typical private sector ones. The reasons the article gives are all very interesting but leave of the most obvious one.

In IT projects, failure is more likely when IT project goal do not align with the companies business goals. In other words you always must remember what the ultimate business of the company is make sure that all IT systems must ultimately enable  those goals.

In the government sector there are no business goals.

  1. Look at the 6 categories for failure further down in the article. Hmmm, I think I could say that multiple of those can be attributed to non-government IT failures, too!
