Have you these symptoms of project problems? – MES005

Why does a project run into trouble?

There are a lot of reasons why a project might run into trouble and most project problems are indicated by specific symptoms. Problems of projects are often caused by changes in leadership, company organization or the company itself. All of them create FUD – Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt. As a result we see inappropriate planning, schedule, staffing, and tons of other issues.

The reasons for project trouble might be impacted by you or not. From the outside key signs are very often rather clear. But very often they cannot be detected from the inside. Within daily work-load, unaware of changes in environment or the company, with lots of rookies in place, critical symptoms are not recognized or misinterpreted. There are always warning signs – the flashing yellow light indicating that a red light will follow.
