In this blog, I am going to talk about the causes of failure in post implementation of IS. They are as follows:
- Failure to learn from previous mistakes: There is always things to be learned from past experiences. Any mistakes that are made in the past need to used so the same mistakes are not made again in future projects. Even knowing this, the same mistakes are recurring and therefore causing the projects to fail.
- Declaring victory too soon: After implementing the IS , the organisation does not reap the full benefits that the IS has to offer straight away! Therefore it is very important not to pull all funding after the project has been implemented. It is vital to keep feeding resources to the project to make sure the system keeps developing and that any fine tuning that needs to take place to the system when its in the real world can be done without difficulty. Unfortunately, this not always the case and projects lose the resources that is needed to keep the IS running well
