9 Lame Excuses for not Killing Projects

Interesting read on www.project-management.com on how it is still common practice not to kill non-productive projects and the most consistently used reasons for same:

#1 The need to get anything to market

#2 Sunk Cost Reasoning

#3 ”We’ve almost found a way”

#4 Executive ‘Pet’ projects

#5 No better projects in the portfolio

#6 No mechanism to kill the project

#7 Lack of Portfolio Management

#8 Can’t refuse Key Customers

#9 It’s just too difficult to say no
