Many projects and programmes get stuck. Project delay can be due to several factors including changes to the market, financial pressure, a change of sponsor, internal resources or challenges with third party technology providers.
Whether it’s falling behind schedule, going over budget, changing direction or stalling altogether, we’ve seen it happen. And we know the damage it can do to the reputation of individuals and teams.
Project slippage is a costly affair too, as suppliers, vendors and internal resources need to be retained for longer and the ‘burn rate’ can be significant.
