Abstract

Digitalisation is a massive challenge for many companies. It develops and changes the world on how people work together. It speeds up the possibilities of handling data and project resources like technical options, globally distributed teams, and methods of managing projects in general.

Through digitalisation, many company processes are in the transformation to be effective, operational in digital projects. When digitalisation is speeding everything up – Why are so many milestones in projects delayed?

Time management must route and coordinate methods in projects. Personal skills, tasks in global teams, human resources (like internal and external resources), customer needs in secured business projects, and lots more aspects have an impact on the time management in projects.

Time is many times a significant aspect of how good or bad a project runs. Less important reasons delay projects until critical effects kick in. Important tasks might be affected and slow down.

Why is it so hard to deliver results in time?
