How do I know if my project is in trouble and needs rescuing?

As a manager project, things just do not add up?  You can see a number of early warning signs.

  • You as a project manager are unclear on the benefits.  The sponsor asks you will the benefits be delivered but you are unclear on the business benefits.
  • Steering committee meetings are more of an operational workshop and there does not seem to be someone guiding the direction of the project
  • There is the struggle with the budget and every week you need to shuffle resources around, dip into the contingency fund, allocate costs to another budget.
  • There are several red flags in the risk register but no actions allocated to address them.
  • The signs go on…
