Here I would like to share some of the project management styles that would be effective in certain environments. We can consider some of the common project environments and what type of project management style will go well with those situations
1. Customer is well organized (Clear Scope, fixed time line & Efficient project Teams)
This is an ideal scenario however this may not be the case in most projects as there will be some challenge if the project team is not engaged well, and if there is high chance team will lose the interest which will damage the work. So in this type of environment Project Manager needs to be more organized and more people -centric to manage the project to be successful as the focus needs to be on the people more (in terms of engaging them well).
2. Difficult Customer (Scope changes, Demand fixed timeline & Efficient Project Teams)
This is most common scenario which we can see in most of cases. The challenging part is Stakeholder Management and clear communication mechanism needs to be in place. In this case Project Manager needs to be commanding and have control over all the stakeholder to ensure that all commitments from different stakeholders are honored on time. All communications to be strictly followed and any deviation to be recorded and rebaseline accordingly upon the approval of the respective stakeholder)s).
3. Difficult Customer (Scope changes, Demand fixed timeline & Unorganized Project Teams)
When both Customer and Project Team are not as expected, then Project Manager’s role becomes even more critical to implement almost all the project management principles strictly in all phases of project execution so that he/she can project the closure of the project to the stakeholders. So in this case for sure Project Manager needs to be trained in Project Management thoroughly to reduce the risk to the project.
