Projects fail for many reasons, and we often learn valuable lessons from researching why past projects failed. In this case study, do an Internet search for failed projects, and choose a recent project that has failed (within the last 10 years). While we are working on an information technology (IT) project, you are not limited to choosing an IT project. You may choose any government or business project that has failed. Your case study should include the elements listed below. Give a brief description of the project, the deliverables, and the failure of the project.
Analyze why the project failed.
Choose two of the five process groups, and explain changes you think could have been made to prevent project failure. Process Group includes: Initiating, planning, executing, monitoring, and closing
Choose three of the nine knowledge areas, and explain changes in these areas that could have led to project success. Knowledge Areas include: Integration management, scope management, time management, cost management, quality management. human resources management, communication management, risk management, and procurement management.
Provide a conclusion in which you state what you feel are the two most important lessons learned from this project failure.
Your completed case study should be at least three pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages. You are required to use at least three outside sources for this assignment, one of which may be the textbook. All references and citations used must be in APA style.
