Although program failure is an occasional reality, program planners tend to avoid evaluating unsuccessful programs. By examining program failure through a systematic audit, future failures can be prevented and worthy programs altered for success.

Th is article further identifies types of program failures, some origins of failure, and responsibility for failure assessments. A matrix illustrates determiners and determinants for consideration in a failure audit.
