project risks

Will your Actions Halt Your Project?

Will your Actions Halt Your Project?

Time and again, we are being shown that our biggest project risks are NOT associated with the technical challenges we might start out with. Instead, we know that two very critical aspects surface time and again.  

Today I want to raise some issues and general links between risks, sustainability and stakeholders. Because I believe they are all tied at the hip.

Are Sector-Specific Project Challenges Really So Different?

Are Sector-Specific Project Challenges Really So Different?

With a look at project management challenges, it seems it doesn't matter what sector the projects are in. They all face the same issues...

Without appropriate engagement and communications, project teams are bound to miss critical requirements for their project – and as such, develop an incomplete scope to proceed. 

Without ensuring we are all well-aligned to the ultimate project goals, and to understanding when it might be okay to shift strategies to get there, we set ourselves up for failure.

Without taking a staged and iterative approach to our projects, and without a willingness to adjust scope and make alternate decisions, as more information is obtained, it is then inevitable that the ultimate goals of the project are put at risk.
