Survey: How Do Salesforce Projects Fail?

How do SFDC projects fail? Let's start a discussion on the kinds of issues we've seen when designing, developing, and delivering Salesforce. Understanding what CAN go wrong helps us all ensure that risk mitigation plans are in place BEFORE things go wrong.


Off the top of my head I've seen:


  • A consultant who accidentally deleted all of the Accounts from production
  • A PM who took vacation the week before the implementation was supposed to go live
  • An offshore developer who neglected to mention that she was nine months pregnant and her delivery date was three days before her part of the project was due
  • A director of sales who could not identify what products his company sold

What about you?
