All experienced portfolio and project managers realize the importance of optimizing costs throughout the whole lifespan of the project they are currently involved in. In the digital era, optimizing software usage among the team can prove to be a real money-saver; you may end up realizing you have been overpaying for software licenses without even thinking about it.
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. The more you spend time with the right people, the easier it will be to put together a schedule and set expectations that are realistic.
