Knowing the structure of an IAM programme is only half the story, as even a well organised programme or project faces a number of pitfalls. The risks generally fall into areas of Executive Support, Business Involvement, Scope, Technology and People. These areas have all been shown to have their own specific issues, all of which need to be addressed before or during the execution of an IAM programme.
Knowing the pitfalls present in each area of the programme enables the business to make risk-based decisions before embarking on individual projects. If failures have been experienced in the past, doubts around success can be answered with logical reasoning rather than an emotional knee-jerk response. Where problems are perceived to exist, steps can be taken to address them before starting any implementation.
