Formatted abstract
Jim Crear, CIO of Standish Group, a company that has been monitoring IT projects since 1994, revealed in 2009 that the highest rate of IT project failure in over a decade had just been reached – some 68 per cent of projects had been identified as not meeting original targets.

Project failure, in this instance,refers to the cancellation of the project or the ineffectiveness of the project, or a project which has been ‘challenged,’ that means a project which was not on time, on budget or did not meet the specification (Larson & Gray, 2011).

Many writers have laid blame to such problems with poor plannng - especially at the early stages in project scoping; during the defining and developing stages (Khan, 2006; Mochal, 2004). It is commomn practice, (PMI, 2008; Westland, 2003), to divide a project into four general stages: defining, planning, executing and closing.
