What are some of the key causes of system implementation failure?
From the original inception of a system to it implementation and use, there are many causes which can result in a failure to implement a new system. These causes can range from management issues to technological issues and many others. It is essential that organizations take the time to research and study the common issues that result in a system implementation failure. This can help to ensure the organization can avoid such issues and help to ensure the success of the system implementation. One of the first causes for failed system implementations which an organization may encounter is the original system conception. Many times new system projects are created on a whim without much research into the feasibility of the project and withier the project will actually meet the end user needs. The root cause of this issue can stem from many locations, but whether it be management pushing a new project, an Information Technology employees who wants to implement the newest technology, or any other reason why a system implementation project is created it is essential that proper research and thought is put in to the feasibility of the system implementation project before beginning.

If the project team for the new system that is going to be implemented does not set a clear defined scope for the project it can result in an exponential growth in the size of the scope for the project. This growth often results in a project that is infeasible and so complex making it impossible create and or implement within the current organizations system and network architecture. This makes clearly defined scopes of new systems and proper project management a must to ensure the scope of a project is kept within feasibility to ensure the success of the systems project and
