Critical Project Recovery

The Challenge

Projects do not get into trouble overnight. There are early warning signs, but most companies seem to overlook them or misunderstand them. Some companies simply ignore the tell-tale signs and continue on hoping for a miracle. Failure to recognize these signs early can make the cost of downstream corrections a very costly endeavor.

Typical challenges include:

- End user stakeholders not involved throughout the project
- Minimal or no stakeholder backing; lack of ownership
- Weak business case
- Corporate goals not understood at the lower organizational levels - Plan asks for too much in too little time
- Poor estimates, especially financial
- Unclear stakeholder requirements
- Unclear expectations
- Assumptions, if they exist at all, are unrealistic
- Plans are based upon insufficient data
- No systemization of the planning process
- Inadequate or incomplete requirements
- Lack of resources
- Assigned resources lack experience
- Poor overall project plan
