If you have ever downloaded any tools or other resources on our site, you know that we usually ask you about your Biggest Business Challenge in our forms. In response to your feedback, we are featuring a blog series on your biggest business challenges! This post is a response to the challenge “Keeping projects on schedule."
Working on projects, especially ones that are dependent on cross-functional teams to get done on time, can be a real challenge for many organizations. Many companies have a “project graveyard” or a list of things that were started and never completely got off the ground. Worse, some companies miss important delivery deadlines on products or services that end up costing the company significantly. Often, we have a great plan for our project at the beginning of the quarter, but when it gets down to the day-to-day execution, things can fall apart.
