Up to 91% of projects in organizations fail, meaning that they come in past deadline, over budget or don’t meet the requirements they were intended to.  Our study of 1,000 executives and project management professionals reveals that the quality of conversations around five common business problems is responsible for the astonishing failure rate of high-stakes business initiatives.  Learn what causes project failure and hot to remedy it.  Some groups have reduced project failure rates by 50 to 70%.
