Project complexity is a factor of scope, budget and resource. Failure to properly balance these significantly increases the chance of failure...

At the Beginning During the Project At the End
•Overly ambitious goals / targets •Unrealistic deadlines / milestones •Failure to learn and improve from experience
•Bad idea •Failure to follow project principles e.g. cut budget but no change to scope  
•Unfeasible objectives •Failure to measure changes in complexity and associated risk  
•Underestimation of complexity •Failure to review and challenge assumptions
