This paper provides the project manager (PM) with three (3) scenarios for examining project failure. For each scenario a decision tree is provided. By asking questions about the task, the PM can determine points of failure, and potential remedies. This is intended to be a learning tool and should affect how a PM prepares for his/her next project.
