Projects today can be more difficult than in the past because they:
- Operate in an environment of often-conflicting goals and outcomes
- Involve many layers of stakeholders with varied interests
- Are allowed little tolerance for failure
- Operate in organizations that often have a difficult time identifying outcome measures and missions
- Are required to be performed under constraints imposed by administrative rules and often-cumbersome policies and processes
- Require the cooperation and performance of agencies outside the project team for purchasing, hiring, and other functions
- Must often make do with existing staff resources
- Are performed in organizations that may not be comfortable or used to directed action and project success
