Every project can have only either of two phases during its entire project lifecycle. It can be either running through a good phase or a bad phase. A good phase is experienced as long as everything is going smooth, things are under control, targets are being met by each and every individual and follow up meetings are more of an enjoyment. In this phase customer is also engaged heavily to showcase the tremendous progress of project during that phase.

But this phase does not remain intact or sustained all through. There are a number of factors responsible for this turnaround. Three of the top interesting factors that mar the progress of a project during its happy state to switch it over to the sad state could be: Loose control of PM over the project, Lesser engagement of PMO, No involvement of customer. This brings in the bad phase of a project. During this phase everything goes haywire. Nothings seems to be under control. Review meetings become painful and insulting, targets become far from meeting deadlines, customer becomes angry, teams become highly dissatisfied and so on. Let us see in next few posts what impacts it brings and how to handle those impacts.
