I can’t believe this isn’t done! I asked for this to be completed months ago.

How is this project so behind? I set out all the milestones clearly.

I guess I’m going to have to work late this week to pull everything together because no one did what they were supposed to do. Why bother to delegate if I end up having to do all the work anyway?

Do any of the above sound familiar? Whether you hold the formal title of Project Manager or are just responsible for managing ad-hoc projects, you’ve likely faced some of the dilemmas described above.
