“The Universe is hostile to the success of your projects.
What are you doing about it?”
In most organizations, project management is practised on an exception basis. We only think of it seriously when the project is in big trouble. The need for project management, and in some cases, even its existence, is acknowledged only when we are squarely faced with the reality that the project is out of control.
Our responses to runaway projects are typical. We rely on the magical power of quick-fixes in the middle of a crisis. Typically, we reorganize the project team, seek a change in the design, bring in a new management tool, or fire the project manager and hope for the best.
