capital project/product failure

The assignment for this topic consists if two parts:

1) For your first topic in this discussion I would like for you to briefly review either your personal experiences and/or the financial literature to identify and present a description of one actual capital project/product failure and the reasons attributed to the failure.

Remember this is a one to two paragraph exercise – do not go overboard – a few hours research and summation is all thats required. I am interested only in your short, concise description of the project and the major reasons you believe it failed.

In your response please provide financial information regarding the project (what is available): initial outlay, projected cash flows, final dollar losses.

2) Synthesize your one-paragraph position on what 3-5 specific factors you believe most likely to contribute to capital project analysis failure.

3) Include a short paragraph reflecting on specifically what you learned/gained from the assignment and how it could apply in the workplace.
