Transparency should be maintained while the project work is in progress, this will help everyone to know about each other’s task.

This will help fix problems at the same stage and an appropriate action can be taken to avoid such delays. Time and cost run hand in hand in any project, the more the delay the more the cost. The project manager and the project sponsor should always create an outline and be prepared for the tasks which might be out of scope and predict the number of days, resources, cost according to their experience. This usually happen with big projects where the scopes can change.

This will give a new experience to the employees and will also improve their working experience.
