This chapter focuses on recognizing the important resource aspects that can cause disruptions in a project and how to deal with and manage them more effectively to reach desired outcomes. You cannot be successful only by following a project methodology. You will need to be aware of your surroundings and know how to use your resources. In past experiences, diverse resources have been shown to dramatically impact cost management as well as the overall timeline. As a project manager, you will need to be prepared to put challenges on permanent lockdown. The overall approach was to create awareness and guide each project manager in overcoming these challenges. When looking back on previously unsuccessful projects, it was not the methodology that was deficient or the project plan but the way that the group came together as a team. There are many complications that come into play when managing difficult project team members. Therefore, get to know your audience as well as your team; it will make a world of difference.
