I'm paraphrasing, but the video says that projects are considered a failure when they are over-budget, late, or do not deliver expected planned results. Perhaps most importantly, it correctly points out how differences in measures of success between customers and vendors influence perception of failure.

The video is only a few minutes long and worth a view.
