  2. Poor communication between stakeholders and project team members
  3. Few interim deliverables, so tangible progress is not demonstrated
  4. Bad news isn’t allowed to be shared, meaning denial is pervasive
  5. Project team works lots of overtime, suggesting the schedule is slipping
  6. Project resources are frequently diverted to other activities
  7. Interim milestones are often missed
  8. Reducing project scope is viewed as an acceptable means to meet budget and schedule requirements
If your project exhibits these traits, you’re a candidate for membership in this exclusive club.
