The Impact of Ineffective Project Management

Project management has lots of cogs and wheels which need to run in unison to create maximum value for a project. But, today project management is not about project anymore, it needs a holistic approach and needs to take into account the real world scenarios. In fact, covering all the aspects of project management is difficult and inefficiencies crop up during the project lifecycle.
