8 project management tips for setting and managing expectations … – CIO New Zealand

Project managers need to ensure expectations for clients and companies are realistic and can be done in a timely manner on budget. Planning a project and getting everyone on board is just a small step. Here are eight tips you can use from beginning to end if a project. Things you need to do while the project is ongoing and what to do if things go wrong. Setting expectations understood by all can prevent disappointment later on.

Key Takeaways:

  • A good manager will make the right team. He/she can add the people with the skills best suited for the goal, and customize the perfect group.
  • As best you can, try to clearly define a timeline from start to finish. That will be hard since different projects take varying amounts of time, but tentatively set one up for group goal setting.
  • Despite the best laid plans, sometimes things don’t turn out the way you think they will. Admit your mistakes openly, regroup, and continue pressing forward.

“Having confidence in the project team can go a long way when it comes to managing client and stakeholder expectations.”
