IT Project failure causes are however somewhat open for interpretation and remedial actions to resolve the continued and ever increasing number of failure cases are inconclusive.

There is growing recognition from in the corporate world for the need to leverage the strategic advantage that IT can provide by adopting a successful approach in relation the delivery of new IT based initiatives.

This is most evident when considering real-time (24 x 7) business commerce such as the services being offered by a number of Internet traders.

A review of best practice project management and IT delivery methods illustrates that various applied and proven methods or practice frameworks exist, that can easily be adopted within organisations of any size to manage the implementation and operation of their IT investment. These same methods or practice frameworks can and should be used to minimise typical IT project failure scenarios.
