(solution) Over my career I have found that one of the major risks to


Over my career I have found that one of the major risks to keeping the project on schedule are a couple of behavioral factors:

  • Parkinson's law is the adage that "work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion". In other words, if a work assignment is given a week, it will take a week to perform; given an hour, the work will take an hour. Clearly, there is difference in the quality of the work depending on the task.

  • The Student Syndrome - waiting till the deadline is looming to begin working on an assignment. (Note- this is not meant as an indirect comment on timely completion by some students in our class).

These behaviors can be and are often interrelated, exhibited by both project team members doing the work and clients who might be reviewing work products in development.

So here are the discussion questions: How would you manage these behaviors on a project? What tools and techniques are you aware of, have you used or experienced that might mitigate or reduce the impact of these behaviors?

This is an open discussion, so if you choose to use some web resources, then please do so and include references (as I have above). Also, please comment on other students' posts.
