Willing to see associates advance

Recognize the need for a corporate-wide methodology

Recognize that importance of effective planning

Recognize the cost and schedules are inseparable

Critical failure factors in project management:

Refuse to consider ideas of associates

Unwilling to admit that change may be necessary

Believe that project management control belongs an executive levels

Reluctant to share information

Refuse to accept accountability

Not willing to see associates advance

View a standard methodology as a threat rather than as a benefit

Fail to understand the benefits of project management

Believe that growth and success in project management are the same

    Interesting lists – but may not explain enough. I wrote a short post on project success recently (http://fearnoproject.com/2009/10/30/rethinking-project-success-and-failure/) that you might find helpful.
