Abstract

Information technology (IT) project management is a crucial issue for organizations today due to the time, resources, and high budgets. This paper examines the causes of IT projects failure within the public sector in State of Qatar. The paper investigates the primary reasons causing IT projects to fail, delayed, and goes over budget. The paper attempts to determine what causes management fail to foresee project failure. This is achieved by surveying government branches and government owned Oil & Gas companies in an attempt to outline the primary reasons causing IT projects to fail. Analysis of the surveyed sample shows that lack of communications, constant change in projects requirements, lack of clarity in projects scope, lack of individual skills in project management, are the leading factors causing IT projects to fail in the Qatari public sector.
