Excerpt from this paper: Another reason for IT implementation failure is lack of strong organizational leadership to steer the project in the right direction. It is crucial for project leaders to adhere to strict standards of time management, organization, planning, and budgets to ensure that goals are accomplished with proper procedures and within appropriate time frames. If time constraints are not properly followed, leadership may attempt to take a short-cut in completing the project thus resulting in IT failures.

Page 2 of 5 pages

Excerpt from this paper: The project became too costly and the need to move money around created budget cuts to crucial areas such as software testing, configuration of the software and interfaces and user training. The lack of end-user training was apparent and the many requirements missed during the analysis became immediately obvious. Doctors could not log onto the system and nurses could no longer enter orders. Patients were waiting for medications and tests and, as a result, the CPOE initiative was a failure.
