A fresh (re)start

Projects are often shelved, and if they do ever start up again, project teams could find themselves part of a vicious cycle. If a project stalls once, then it likely will stall again. This article identifies the main culprits for project suspension and uses a museum project in Greece, which was famous for starts and stops, as an example. Project suspension gives its leaders a chance to assess the situation and determine whether to keep the initiative going. When a stalled project restarts, project managers and team members cannot continue as before. In addition, the article includes a process for successfully restarting a project. It cautions that a restarted project, in the end, may sound like a completely new initiative. Accompanying this article are two sidebars: The first looks at the people side of stalled projects; the second lists some of the biggest challenges of restarting a stalled project. A tip on restarting a project is also included.
