Why governmental projects often fail

Reasons for failing projects vary from political cycles (new government new views) to the lack of overview. An obvious pitfall is that politicians having made a decision are most of the time deaf to criticism. Mind map made with the new version of iMindmap (5). It’s a pity that the spectacular 3D vision can not be exported. You can watch the film of the 3D presentation:

    Government projects often fail simply because they are not effectively planned, no one has an overview, there are too many stakeholders who do not know how to communicate effectively. I recently produced a huge overview mindmap to show the structure of a UK government whitepaper for education reform. This mindmap showed clearly the areas of overlap, duplication and contradiction of information. If the paper had been planned carefully first in the form of a mindmap then I believe much if not all of the resulting issues would not have occurred. Here is a link to the blog post I produced http://destech.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/education-white-paper-2010/
