How to manage difficult projects and help in their success, put a plan in place, get an agreement about it from all the important parties and then implement according to the plan, with the willingness to make adjustments when needed, and get the agreement again I have found that people are doing well when they refrain from Informed and their input is evaluated, so we will talk in this article about how to manage difficult projects and help in their success
How to manage difficult projects
First, we need to define the difficulty within the project.
Dealing with a project client can be difficult.
The technology used in the project can be challenging.
Also, dealing with specific team members within a project can be difficult.
Finding the right resource for the job can be difficult.
It can be difficult to get a project done when your hands are already full.
Once identified, we can check them one by one.
Freeze the requirements: Spend enough time writing a job document and explanation for the client so that change requests do not come during the project. If the client likes to receive daily emails, send him/her it is better to do so than to hear from your manager that you are not doing a good job.
If technology is something your team doesn’t know then you don’t want to rush the project because you will fail every day and it won’t be the team’s fault, get a two week of time for the team to understand the concept and in the least do some RND. Request resources from experienced people rather than novices.
Some team members are difficult to deal with, and reading enough team management books to understand how to engage with specific people, often become your main problem and then the project.
As I mentioned earlier, don’t compromise with your team and make sure you get the best possible supplier who can deliver the project on time and within budget and show the management the bigger picture, if they only give you anyone available.
Learn how to delegate small projects/tasks. Otherwise, you may end up with a lot of projects and tasks that can cause you headaches on a daily basis.
Project management tips
Use a methodology appropriate to the nature of the project, for example, a project is not forcefully suited to the traditional plan approach (“the waterfall”) and if the project has a high level of uncertainty, it is likely to be more appropriate for an accelerated development approach.
Develop a close collaborative relationship with the project sponsor in advance to establish a clear definition of what “success” means and a mutual understanding of the risks and potential issues involved
Develop and implement a proactive approach to mitigate, manage and stay on top of risk throughout the entire project
Ensure that you have the appropriate level of well-trained resources available to undertake the project and that they are committed to the project no matter what
