Barriers to project performance


Paul Bannerman



This paper contributes to our understanding of how the performance of IT projects might be improved. It identifies the need for including drivers of failure and underperformance in models of project performance and proposes such a model, focusing on organizational capabilities available to apply to projects. Barriers to learning and capability development are proposed that can offset capability accumulation, reducing the organization’s ability to perform well.
