- Projects are run ad hoc with little to no standards.
- Lack of proper scoping at the beginning of the project leads to constant rescoping, rescheduling, and budget overruns.
- Project leads track progress in their own way, which makes it difficult for leadership to understand project process and identify what projects require assistance.
- Absent documentation means project leads are left to reinvent the wheel every time a new project is assigned.
- Unable to pinpoint the ultimate decision maker, the project lead works unnecessarily to meet everchanging expectations.
- Do not burden project managers with things they do not have time to do.
- Determine what a sustainable process means for your organization.
- Most formal project management methodologies are too comprehensive and rigorous for most IT projects.
- Make the most of your project manager’s time, and be judicious about the standard that is set.
