At first, identifying the potential problems. Though I will pay more attention to the top three classical problems, it is necessary to analyze other potential problems in specific project by investigating similar IT projects that is “Failure” or “Success” before kicking off project. The “similar” can be explained in many aspects, such as same goals, cost, scope, same industry, background and so on. I need to investigate how such similar project fails. For example, we assume that a company want to launch an ERP projects recently. In this area, there are many companies did it before. Failure of high-profile ERP projects is common. In order to avoid mistakes that usually occurs in such IT project, it can investigate many failure projects, such as Airforce, Saudi Telecom and so on. The project failure of Airforce due to the following reasons: weak teamwork & composition and lack of top management support.

Process design focuses the organization on the issues that are most important, helps management and employees think critically and strategically, and generate the right level of consensus and commitment necessary to move the organization forward. The success of any organisation is dependent upon a sound understanding of its operating environment, and on well crafted and well executed plans.

Every project basically centers around mistakes that are either people or process related. Seldom are the chances that mistakes have anything to do with technology or the product itself. There are seven classic mistakes that are found to occur very commonly in nearly one third of projects. They include poor estimation and scheduling, ineffective management of stakeholders, insufficient management of risks, planning insufficiently, giving less importance to quality assurance, weak work force issues and insufficient sponsorship of project. Proactively identifying problems and taking corrective measures to alleviate the hiccups can prove to be very helpful in handling these mistakes prematurely. How to not do a project The Seven classic mistakes Every

Therefore, most ERP implementations are project based and are spanned across a certain timeframe and include separate interdependent activities like
IS development processes are the number of keys that involving in the development processes and referrers as the phrases of the systems development life-cycles, which is a traditional processes used to develop information systems. Some researchers has described that the basic task is playing a crucial role on the performance of successful build and maintain information systems. In fact, there are several projects that have been failure or success at the early phrases because of the disaster of making determination. For instance, the key stakeholder factor will have different responsibilities and engage in the successes or failure of the project.
