Not all projects succeed. On average, two in five projects do not meet their original goals and business intent, and one-half of those unsuccessful projects are related to ineffective communications. This translates to US$75 million at risk for every US$1 billion spent. Not only is an organization risking dollars, but it is risking project success rates. Research proves that ineffective communications leads to fewer successful projects; organizations that are minimally-effective communicators report significantly fewer projects that meet original goals, come in on time, and complete within budget. Too many scope changes, communication and organisational problems, and poorly defined objectives are cited as the most common causes of failure while the most costly reasons are lack of involvement of all team members in project decisions and poor resource planning.
