stopprojectfailureAs a follow up to some recent presentations on stopping SharePoint project failure, I thought it may be helpful to summarize some key references in an article. I have also included links to my slides and other resources to help you deal with SharePoint projects that may have “warning” written all over them or currently on course via the Titanic, enjoy ūüôā

#1 Reason SharePoint Projects Fail

I will just start off with the “goods”…The #1 reasons I see SharePoint (or any IT projects) fail are because¬†of lack of clarification and lack of research/understanding. In the end, this pretty much is due to time and money. Although there are other reasons a project might end up tanking, the reality is that budgets are so tight that either people do not take enough time to create extremely detailed requirements before beginning or they lack the knowledge of¬†either¬†what SharePoint can do¬†or the knowledge of the environment they are working in.
