Karyn and I have a running conversation in the comments of her last post.
Last night, I started thinking....what is a "failed project"?
Is it the project that gets through implementation, then just doesn't work - or worse, harms your business? (This was my initial definition. Now I'm not so sure.).
Is it the project that never makes it past the analysis stage?
Is it determined by the ROI (or lack thereof) for the amount of money/time/resources spent?
I know we go into projects looking for measures of success.
Do any of us define when to give up? Where spending more money/time/resources doesn't make sense?
