So you have your opinions on why projects fail.
Maybe you think you have the answers. At times, we may all think that way.
But have you taken some time to consider what anybody else thinks?
Have you had a dialogue to compare notes and reflect?
This has been my underlying driver for researching why projects fail in the natural resources sector. Why we are continuing to face such high cost overruns, and extended schedules within our projects? And why do our stakeholders never seem to be satisfied with the outcomes?
Working in the mining sector, and oversight of projects within that realm, I always felt it was easy to see where blaring issues arose. I could always spot the gaps, from my perspective, and within my realm of experience. As likely all people can do - within their range of experience. The problem is, the things you can spot are never the only things going on.
We are blind to what we don’t know.
