Scope Creep and Gold Plating are two sides of the same coin

| Posted in Project Management, Why Projects Fail |


coin 2 While Scope Creep and Gold Plating may appear as two different issues in project management, they are relevant and very likely to result in unsatisfied customers, the creep term is so true, you start a small change and accept it without enough analysis then you find yourself doing another change in order to implement the first one, and creep keeps going and going!

The Doormat Project Manager Syndrome

| Posted in Project Management, Why Projects Fail |


The Doormat Project Manager is headlessDo you always say YES? It’s time to say NO! many project mangers intentionally play this role of a doormat, they mistakenly think it would make them successful or at least get seen as obedient and trying to always please each and every stakeholder, being a doormat destroys the professional image of the project manager it also exhibits some stereotypes of project failure
