Your project for the course is to review business publications including the Wall Street Journal, major newspapers and business publications to find three in depth articles that describe an example of a “failing” or “failed” project.  For each project, research two or three additional articles that describe the project at an earlier date or later date so you can track the emergence and resolution of the factors which caused the failure. Create a research paper to answer the questions “Why do Projects Fail?”. Your choice of failures can be from an industry or functional area or interest to you or they can just be highly publicized projects (like Boston’s Big Dig or the Challenger Space Shuttle).
