  • Zinabie Tadesse Gebremedhin Ethiopia the project plan should be realistic . over ambition plan may cost the project manager repeatedly plan revision and not trust by founding group while under estimated plan also has problem .the project manager should consider this two ill side of project plan . we should also expect delay of project activities . this should be taken as natural factors such drought , flood . strong wind , heavy rain ,...etc biological factors , epidemic , civil war, inflation ....etc .

  • Augustine Antwi-Boasiako Ghana The key thing that we are talking about is time constraint due to delay. This this happens the project manager will have to allocate much resources (labor) to the component of the project so as to catch up.

  • Cyrus Wanjohi Kenya During the project the Project Manager should assess each step. If there are delays they should identify alternate actions to bring the project back within the time constraints. Often this is done by putting more resources, time or money into a particular activity. This course of action should be thought through carefully. Time and costs need to be traded off in order to get the project completed.

  • Ize Adava United States of America If projects would "rarely follow laid out plans" then why plan at all?

  • Lesley McLaughlin United States of America This is where experience can make or break a project. An experienced PM is more likely to be able to look at the components of the project and determine where changes can be made that will have the least effect on the timeline and cost. If caught early enough, perhaps there will be no cost or time ramifications at all.
