Government and industry research repeatedly points to inadequate attention to program management as the leading cause of program cost, schedule, and scope compromises, which has made customers skeptical of ventures that lack a proven management record. The 2011 GAO Report to Congressional Committees identifies nine critical success factors for large complex programs, all of which deal with program management disciplines and surprisingly not technical challenges.
