- Hi, I'm Chris Croft, and welcome to this course on project problems. We're going to be looking at how can we avoid problems happening and what can we do if problems crop up. And you probably will get problems, if you're running a project, because if you think about it, the definition of a project is you're attempting to do something that has not been done before. And projects are particularly difficult, because they have the triple constraint of cost, quality, and time. So you're trying to do something really good against a time limit and with a fixed budget.
So it's going to be difficult. Problems are likely to happen, and we're going to look at how can you avoid those and what can you do if they happen. I've divided problems into four types. We've got people problems, quality problems, cost related problems, and time related problems. So, let's get started.
