Why do IT projects fail?

IT projects can fail for many reasons. One of the most common causes is underestimating how long the project will take to complete and not staying on top of deadlines. This could happen because a deadline was set too soon or due to unexpected delays such as technical issues, changes in scope, team members leaving before work is completed, lack of resources, etc. Other factors that contribute are unrealistic expectations from stakeholders about what can be done within a given timeframe and developers getting stuck on one issue while other tasks pile up behind them.
