Chronicles some of the reasons for project failure. Defines critical success factors, identifies causes of project success or failure — not satisfactorily explaining reasons behind the causes. Contends that people do not like to plan, thinking only of the end result. Lists out seven items that can go wrong. States that management by objectives requires that project milestones be put in place. Argues that the use of an analytical, logical method of management in search of answers is debatable — even in standardized production environments.
