Lack of consideration for the processes needed to bridge the gap between vision and solution implementation is the largest cause of project failure. Organizations that ignore process are more likely to experience downturns or spend resources unnecessarily. Failure to consider the correct process that will connect vision and implementation for IT projects is akin to “Ready, Aim, Fire”, but forgetting to Aim.
