Company XYZ has many challenging projects and initiatives for 2006 - 2007 as the company strives to meet the goals of operational excellence. Projects completed in 2005 indicate that 30 % of the projects failed. Cummings and Worley's (2005) Eight-Step Action Research Model will be applied to help identify the root causes for the 30 % project failures at the Company and develop an intervention that will reduce project failures. Further, the proposal would demonstrate a thorough literature review for the causes of project failures.
