The Cost of Bad Project Management

baddogThere is increasing evidence that focusing solely on the process of project management and not on how people interact with the processes leads to project failure. As this article from the Gallup Management Journal points out, only 2.5% of companies reach 100% completion on their projects. The main factor behind such a low number is a lack of involvement and “forcing” team members to adopt project management processes without consideration paid to how the process suites the field. Creating project management tools and practices that embrace the needs and opinions of the people doing the work prevents this disparity, potentially saving the project and thousands of dollars in sunk costs.
