Realistic Project Planning
Project management ensures proper expectations are set around what can be delivered, by when, and for how much.
Effective project managers should be able to negotiate reasonable and achievable deadlines and milestones across stakeholders, teams, and management. It enables the project manager to analyze and balance the available resources, with the required timeline, and develop a realistic schedule, bringing objectivity to the planning.
A clear process, with achievable deadlines, enables everyone within the project team to work within reasonable bounds, and not unreasonable expectations.
