The project success always depend with five M’s at hand. Materials, Machine, Money, Man & Methodologies and Management. There are some who’ve been into a deep pitfalls once a strategic imbalance of these five M”s becomes uncontrollable and loose like a raging bull. We all commit several blunders after failing to spot a potential red flag in any of the four M”s – Man & Methodologies, Money or Resources of Funding, Machine both small and large and of course the lack of or over supply of Materials at the project site where all challenges either simple or cloak in sophistication can be found.
The pitfalls are simply avoidable if you come in, well prepared and armed with the best tool if not the most applicable management planning software where you can expect at least an On-time and On-Budget projects that is a music to stakeholders ears which means business success and avoid numerous red flags in the course of the project.
There are many computer based project management tools readily available in the current market a project management team or project managers to choose from depending on the magnitude of a project.
