Many private sector organizations and government agencies are not receiving the commensurate value for their investments in system modernization. Hence, we see many modernization projects failing entirely or being shelved prior to completion due to the lack of return on investment (ROI). Even when stakeholders are aligned and all the right steps are taken, failure of technology projects occurs more often than success, with as many as 82% of large-scale Agile initiatives classified as “failed” or “challenged.” Such failure is even more pervasive in the federal government. These rampant project failures can be attributed to multiple causes, ranging from incorrect technology selection to a lack of strict project management or stakeholder alignment, to name a few. However, there is a critical component that often goes overlooked-one that can make all the difference in the fate of large-scale modernization projects: Strategic Mobilization.
