Worse still, once the project began to show signs of problems, the stakeholders were unable to realize that the fundamental issue that they faced was one that was concentric upon project management and not the actual scope of the coding or other IT concerns that a project of this size entailed. Sadly, the case of Union Credit Program is one that has a high degree of relevance with respect to the way in which many projects or organized and develop. Utilizing this case as a fundamental mechanism of understanding, the researcher can point to the fact that many elements of project management failed. Likewise, delineating these failures and seeking to provide a discussion with respect to how these failures might have been averted, and could potentially be averted by firms/organizations in the future, will serve as the crux upon which the following analysis will rest.
Project management and the need for an increase in efficiency and utility, as a function of promoting the success of its particular program or approach, is something that all firms, organizations, and branches of government must seek to employ. Ultimately, effective project management is something that is unlikely to ever be completely effective or correct in its implementation. as a function of this, the need for review, analysis, and integration of lessons learned is an appropriate mechanism through which stakeholders can seek to promote the interests of their respective organization/firm in the future (Ali amp. Kidd, 2014). Within such an understanding, this particular analysis will engage a discussion with regards to the case of the Universal Credit Programme and the means through which project planning and project governance could have been utilized to a more effective degree. potentially creating a situation in which the losses and failures of the program would not have been evidenced to the degree in which they were.
