The age of technology and the advent of the systems that support it have expanded the capabilities of numerous organizations throughout the world, however, IT projects continue to fail at an alarming rate. The purpose of this study is to determine why IT projects are failing focusing on three key variables that include project leadership, team dynamics, and the processes and procedures that support the project. This study will analyze all three variables to determine which variable has the most significant impact on IT project failure. Understanding the impact leadership, team dynamics, and the processes and procedures that support the project have on a project’s final outcome is critical to the success of future IT related projects. This study will also incorporate theories, concepts, and case studies from a combination of scholarly, peer reviewed articles and other online sources to ultimately draw a viable conclusion as to why IT projects continue to fail even with the monumental advancements in technology over the last ten years.
