  1. @Patrick, with 6000+ years of history in construction, entertainment and new product developments behind us, there is PLENTY of solid evidence-backed research not only identifying the root causes of why projects fail but the FIXES to those problems.

    While I agree with your basic premise that most of them are caused by HUMAN FAILINGS or WEAKNESSES, what is missing is the will to ADDRESS THEM,

    Until or unless we are willing and able to hold project SPONSORS, project MANAGERS and project CONTROLS/PMO OFFICERS both CIVILLY and CRIMINALLY ACCOUNTABLE for their misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance, nothing is ever going to change. See Glenn Butts, NASA, slides #31 and #32? This was written 10 years ago and STILL no action on his recommendations.
