Just when you think you’ve got all of them lined up, one makes a break for the fence and the rest get the urge to follow. When your purview includes both in-house and off-site contributors, the challenge of keeping on top of everything – and everyone – is only magnified. Wonder how things are going when your back is turned? Although you may not be able to always control every aspect of a project, if you encounter some the following situations, it should tip you off that all is not well. The sooner you notice any of these warning signs, the more quickly you can take care of the problems and get your project back on track.
