Evade project management pitfalls and save the day.
IT organizations seem to do everything in projects, yet fewer than 15% successfully complete all deliverables on time and on budget.
Project managers seem to succumb to the relentless pressure from stakeholders to deliver more, more quickly, with fewer resources, and with less support than is ideal.
To achieve greater likelihood that your project will stay on track, watch out for the four big pitfalls: scope creep, failure to obtain stakeholder commitment, inability to assemble a team, and failure to plan.
While many project managers worry about proper planning as the key to project success, skilled management of the political factors around a project has a much greater impact on success.
Alone, combating scope creep can improve your likelihood of success by a factor of 2x.
A strong project sponsor will be key to fighting the inevitable battles to control scope and obtain resources.
