Have you ever had a problem – or a disastrous – project in your organization? When this happens, it is often “clear” that the problem is with the consultants hired to help, and sadly, this is often true. But is some of the fault also with your organization? While a previous post looked at issues from an external perspective, this post looks in the mirror: can a project be structured in a way that can minimize the potential for it to go off the rails? And more specifically, what are some of the root factors that you might do something about?
Are all of your projects going exceptionally well? Or do you think you just might be able to do better? This week, review this list (and this one), then consider whether a slight mid-course correction – or a significant project pivot – can make a difference.
Management insight: The best organizations use post-mortem meetings to understand how to improve in the future. This combined list of issues can also be used as a rating scale in these meetings: for each item, rate how well (or poorly) you did, along with how the grade might be improved in the next project.
