Top 10 project management mistakes:
1- Underestimating the effort needed is a major reason projects get into trouble.
2- The most common reason projects fail is failure to evolve the real requirements.
3- Rework, especially late in the
project life cycle, is a leading cause of missed deadlines and overspending.
4- When processes aren't documented and followed, project teams end up trying to reinvent the wheel.
5- We seem to prefer to hear very bad news at the end of a project rather than in small doses earlier on, when problems actually crop up.
6- The best results are not produced by the heroic efforts of a few individuals acting alone, but when the entire team works together.
7- Build quality into work products at the end of the project instead add quality at a whole phases.
8- Project without direction because you don't update the plan when it needs.
9- Make decisions based on feelings rather than facts.
10- Build lopsided team with a concentration of skills in one area.
