Projects don’t go as smoothly as we would like, even if we plan with the best software and do the best job we can. Project leaders need to learn to ride with the waves on a project and to deal with problems as they arise.
However, a better approach is to try to spot trouble on the project before it turns into a major problem. Continually monitoring the status of your project is the best way to do that, but what does it actually mean?
So it’s hard to make time to consult more widely. But you should. Getting the right people involved in the project at the very beginning can make it a lot easier to get off on the right foot.

One of the main jobs of a project manager is to track how the work is going. Not only in terms of quality of deliverable but also more practically: are you getting through the work as planned?
