Excellent question: What does it mean to be late? Or, not on budget? In a way, it's all negotiable, and the successful outcome of those negotiations depends on relationships.

According to this article, the "dirty little secret" of project management is that no one really follows deadlines for a project.
"If your customer doesn't think you're late, then you're not late." This means that as long as you keep your customers posted on the project, all deadlines are tentative, but they should be changed sooner rather than later.___Excellent question: What does it mean to be late?

The sense of urgency is key.

Project managers are often under-appreciated. This article is written by a project manager to advocate for himself and all project managers and prove their importance. The value of a project manager can be promoted in three ways - (1) maintaining a fluid process, (2) showing a sense of urgency, and (3) sharing your success. Project managers are the glue holding a project together; if you are consistent with your contributions to the project's successes, your team, clients, and other stakeholders will begin to see that, and you will consequently earn their trust and appreciation.___The sense of urgency is key.

One thing that stops agile in its tracks is that people become wed to certain practices and conceptions.

I thought this was a great article. The author compared "breaking up" with a project to an actual breakup from a relationship.

I really like this quote from the end of the article, and it sums it up very well:

"Breaking up is never easy, but just like human relationships, when done constructively the net result is almost always positive. And it is an essential step, so that time and attention can be redirected toward new ideas. Don’t let the fear of confrontation stop these potentially positive outcomes."___One thing that stops agile in its tracks is that people become wed to certain practices and conceptions.
