Project management is key to the success of every project. Period.

What we know is:

1. Extensive planning is vital

2. Proper personnel is in place for all tasks

3. Never underestimate how vital it is to address change management as early as possible. For every 1% of stakeholder hesitance is 50% more work to get the project completed

4. A proper communication plan is in place, so that there is never a moment that the client/supplier/vendor is out of the loop

5. Never underestimate how a project can turn in a moments notice. Prepare for all problems, pose solutions for potential problems before they happen. It is less of a surprise to everyone.
