I feel that CRM projects fail for many of the same reasons most systems projects fail: Poor requirements planning, lack of business support, no senior management involvement, inadequate project management, fuzzy goals, limited funding, project scope creep, lack of proper infrastructure planning, failure to understand and integrate business procedures. Good luck.
