New Poll — Corner Cutting in Project Management

Inspired by a post on Sharp End Training’s blog (here), my post (here), and a comment by PM Hut

FYI, moved to right sidebar

Corner-cutting in Project Management

Elizabeth included this post from Sharp End Training’s blog (here).  I agree with her assessment of the post.  It is a good question but I would have like to seen a take on which corners are typically cut, not why corners were cut.  FWIW, here are my top ten corners typically cut:

  1. Stakeholder management planning
  2. Executing planned communications with senior management
  3. Executing planned communications with non-project stakeholders
  4. On-going risk monitoring and control
  5. Communications planning
  6. Risk response planning
  7. Integrated change control, especially for changes in resources
  8. Performance appraisals for project team members
  9. Quality planning
  10. Contract administration

I’d appreciate any comments on where “corners are cut”…  Perhaps this will make a good poll question?
