Glory! The Top 12 Project Challenges for Project Managers | Video

Let’s talk about Project Challenges…

Nobody builds an exceptional reputation from straightforward deeds

Taking on a simple project and delivering it shows good project management skills. And if you do it enough, people will see you as a safe pair of hands.

But, if you want people to see you as a star, you’ll need to do something remarkable. So, I wondered what are the top 12 challenges for a Project Manager.

This video is safe for viewing in the workplace.

This is learning, so, sit back and enjoy

Here’s my List of Top Project Challenges, in no particular order:

  1. Taking on a project no one thinks can be done.
  2. Turning around a failing project.
  3. Taking over a project that that someone else has started.
  4. Managing two large projects at the same time – and delivering them.
  5. Working in a highly political context with opposing factions.
  6. Delivering a project for two organizations at once.
  7. Bringing in your project ahead of schedule and below budget. And still meeting all your specification and quality objectives.
  8. Leading a project with a massive public profile.
  9. Handling a crisis, triggered by external events.
  10. Working in a very different culture to your own.
  11. Leading a culturally diverse and geographically dispersed team.
  12. Dealing with a massive change, well into your project.
