Many of us have been on a project that doesn't go as planned. The truth is:
- Only 44% of projects finish on time
- Projects usually complete at 222% of original duration planned
- Projects usually complete at 189% of original budget
- 70% fall short of their intended scope
- 30% are cancelled before completion
Do projects slip because of poor planning and underestimating the time it takes to get the work done? Do they slip because of a lack of skilled resources assigned to do the work? Do projects slip because of a lack of adequate risk strategies in place? Or is it actually human nature to be late?
Ron Holohan, PMP, uncovers many of these mysteries and offers suggestions on how you can insure your project deliverables finish on time, and in many cases, earlier than expected, through recognizing and understanding several fundamental factors of human nature that cause projects to be late and how to overcome those factors.
