What goes wrong with projects: most common issues & challenges

swingThis article from PMIS lists the most common problems encountered in projects: unclear goals, lack of alignment, scope creep, and lack of committed teamwork among them. Not surprisingly, the majority of issues center around confusion due to a lack of communication or challenges in acquiring status/project information. Combatting these challenges requires consistent engagement with team members, stakeholders, and executive management, and a system that promotes this communication regularly. Furthermore, the article explains that the “memory” of an organization is fickle: unless successful processes are documented, it is likely project managers will not implement the same procedures on future projects   (leading to new challenges and issues).
