My Project Failed … 5 reasons why!

Project FailedDiana Petrowicz has written an article entitled, 5 Worst Project Management Mistakes.

My take on her article is that even simple projects should have a project plan. In this instance, you probably do not need to load your full blown Project Planning Software. However, a mental plan, but better a written plan would be better.

At the start of a new project, we are usually pumped and feel that “we’ve got this.” Even on the simplest projects a number of things can go wrong. Diana Petrowicz says that when a new project starts everyone is motivated at first and happy to get stuck in. Unfortunately within the process some projects fail.

She has summarized the 5 worst project mistakes a project manager can commit. These 5 mistakes are listed below and you can read the entire article here:

1. Starting Without a Plan
2. Sudden Scope Creep
3. Unrealistic Expectations
4. Continuing a Failing Project
5. Working with a Dysfunctional Team
