6 Perils of Project Management

If you’re contacting your client ten times a day, aren’t taking your lunch break, and don’t have time to ask your teammates questions, you’re in serious trouble. Natalie Semczuk outlines the six perils of project management, and whether you’re new to the job or an experienced PM, you’ll find that these habits are easy to fall into. However, they aren’t so easy to get out of.

  1. Over or under communicating with clients
  2. Not asking for help when needed
  3. Not planning for the unexpected
  4. Taking things personally
  5. Over promising and under delivering
  6. Having a reactive workflow instead of a balanced one

Remember that overloading yourself won’t help anyone, and the project will end up suffering. Ask coworkers for help, get advice, and find the right balance between flexibility and sticking to the plan. There are perils to face on the path to project management, but they don’t have to mean the end of the road.
