For most of us, making mistakes is just part of learning and gaining experience. Some of us have probably even repeated the same mistake, until we learned a valuable lesson, hopefully preventing us from repeating the mistake again.

However, not all mistakes (or their resulting repercussions) are limited to us as individuals – especially when it comes to mistakes made while working on projects.

A single mistake from the person in charge of a project can not only cause delays but at times might even result in the complete failure of a project. This is not only incredibly demotivating but can also create issues around reputation management not to mention a potential marketing nightmare for the organisation or the team ultimately responsible for the delivery of the project.
Not all projects are the same, however every project brings its own complexities and challenges, which need to be tackled in a specific way.
There are some common mistakes which will typically arise across any project. Our friends at Zoe Talent Solutions have identified these mistakes and incorporated them into the infographic below with the hope of spreading awareness, and seeing more projects being delivered successfully … and on time!
