Poor Planning

Projects normally follow a ''project plan'' written at the initiation of a project. The ingredients of such a plan are described in detail in Chapter 3. Such plans often are ''locked in'' as part of a proposal and cannot be easily modified from the point of view of the customer. Because system developments are rather dynamic, most project plans are obsolete 6 to 12 months after they have been written. They therefore need to be continually updated to reflect the current understanding and status of the system. Basing communications and future actions on outmoded or nonexistent plans can lead to large amounts of trouble.
