For at least three of these reasons, explain why this happens, if there is one (or more) type of implementation likely to minimize the occurrence, and if there is one (or more) type of installation more likely to induce failure for this reason.

In addition, users must have a commitment to the project and a commitment to change. Poorly done project definition and planning can set up a project for failure. Users also must have realistic and consistent expectations of the system’s capabilities. Of course, the system must be relevant to the work the user performs.

The more users can do with a system and the more creative ways they can develop to benefit from the system, the more they will use it. Then more use leads users to find even more ways to benefit from the system. The more satisfied the users are with the system, the more they will use it. The more they use it, the more satisfied they will be 2.Two members of your project development team are disagreeing about the relative importance of training and documentation.
