The Standish Group performed a study (The Standish Group, "Unfinished Voyages" (1996), http://www.standishgroup.com) on factors which contribute to the success of an IT project. These factors were subsequently ranked with respect to relative importance:
 
Success Criterion Relative Importance
User Involvement 19
Executive Management Support 16
Clear Statement of Requirements 15
Proper Planning 11
Realistic Expectations 10
Smaller Project Milestones 9
Competent Staff 8
Ownership 6
Clear Visions and Objectives 3
Hardworking, Focused Staff 3
Total 100
 
The results of this study go to suggest that project success is most likely to be achieved through involvement of project stakeholders, support of the project at an executive level and clear statements of requirements - Some pretty interesting stuff to remember when working on IT projects.

Update - Information about the Unfinished Voyages study can be found at http://www.standishgroup.com/sample_research/unfinished_voyages_1.php
