In recent years, Information Technology (IT) has emerged to become a critical resource for doing business. With more importance being given to IT in organizations, more resources are also being earmarked for such initiatives. However, the rate of failure of IT projects across the globe has remained at around 50 percent in survey after survey done over the past couple of decades. This has happened in spite of new and more resilient technologies, innovative methods, tools and management practices. Interestingly, the reasons for failure remain the same and the issues and the problems recur again and again. A large number of these issues are related to failures in appreciating risks related to IT projects and categorization of such risks relating to non-adherence to frameworks for managing IT projects and IT governance at large.
