The majority of researches conducted, in short, comparative studies with indexes and mathematical properties, using statistical tools such as analysis of variance and regression. It generally noted the lack of research on the topic in Brazilian journals, which enables opportunities for future studies.

    by Anthony Munyare, Daniel Orwa 
    Abstract: ICT has become a critical differentiator in businesses enabling them to gain a competitive edge over their competitors. ICT Projects in the private sector do well compared to those in the public sector and worse in government agencies. Despite many governments around the world realizing ICT can help in delivering services to their citizens, ICT projects in developing countries run far-behind schedule and failing to deliver the expected benefits. The purpose of this research was to identify the ICT project failure factors in government agencies of developing countries by assessing the effect of the project, people, and technology related-issues. The research used questionnaires for data collection. The research revealed that most projects and people related-issues contributed to the failure of ICT projects in government agencies. The research recommends the presence of a clear vision and strategy in ICT projects, and formulation of project management policies to govern project management teams across all government agencies.
