Abstract -
Most software projects can be considered at least partial failures because few projects meet all their cost, schedule, quality, or requirements objectives. Failures are rarely caused by mysterious causes, but these causes are usually discovered post-mortem, or only after it’s too late to change direction. This research paper is based on survey carried out on different software consultants, developers and practitioners who were asked to provide reasons of failed projects with which they have been acquainted. Many factors have been considered in this research which generally leads to failure of software project and after analysis it has been proven that “Lack of user involvement’ in the requirement phase leads more impact on software project failures. Hence, in this research, researcher has recommended that user should get involved completely in requirement gathering, designing phase.
