A project is a temporary endeavour that creates a unique result. Time, budget, resources, and performance specifications, to meet requirements made by stakeholders, limit a project (Project Management Institute, 2013, pg.3). Project management is the application of tools, techniques, and knowledge to help achieve the three main constraints of scope, cost and time (Project Management Institute, 2013, pg.5). This applies managerial process and gives project managers the opportunity to make a project successful. However, there are still numbers of project failures both big and small projects. This failure does not only affect finances but also demoralizes employees who have laboured diligently to complete the work. The case of Wembley Stadium project failure will be analyzed in this paper to illustrate project management difficulties a project can encounter if appropriate tools and techniques are not successfully developed, implemented, and evaluated within the project management processes. The major problems concerning the Wembley Stadium project were scope, time, cost, quality, and stakeholder issues (Carter, 2002). However, this paper would be focusing on scope, time and cost issues. The format of this paper will include the project analysis, which will provide brief description of the Wembley stadium project, and main reasons why the project failed. This will be followed by the analysis of how the issue of the project failure is related to project management knowledge
