Assuming everyone is on the same page. :

Assuming everyone is on the same page.  2 Above all, the project manager is responsible for ensuring that everyone is on the same page. This is accomplished mostly by remaining current with the project schedule and disseminating it on a regular basis, as well as by taking notes after all meetings to verify that everyone heard the same thing and is completely aware of all assignments and choices made. If there is no follow-up and status information such as the project timeline is not delivered on a regular basis, one or more team members will quickly fall out of step with the rest of the team...and that is a dreadful scenario to be in.

Conducting meetings on an inconsistent schedule. :

3 Conducting meetings on an inconsistent schedule.  It's vital to keep to a regular meeting schedule with the project team. Poor attendance, poor communication and information transmission, and issues possibly falling through the cracks result from an uneven meeting schedule and numerous cancellations. You don't want to be recognised as the project manager who has a history of cancelled meetings and poor meetings. If stakeholders are busy or have a conflict in their schedule, they will miss your meetings. You want yours to be the go-to, must-attend meeting of the day or week, not the other way around.

Not using a collaborative tool. :

4 Not using a collaborative tool.  Collaboration is incredibly beneficial for keeping the team in sync, and it may help the project manager save time by keeping everyone informed and on the same page. Using a good, collaborative project management platform on your projects may surely assist to mitigate this possible issue. With so many tools now accessible – both desktop and web-based – there's no reason you can't find one that works for your project.

Succumbing to group think. :

Succumbing to group think.  5 Finally, giving in to groupthink might cause major issues for your project. Everyone on the team should have an equal opportunity to express their concerns and ideas. One unaddressed worry might lead to a possible risk being overlooked, resulting in sensitive data being lost or compromised as a result of malfunctioning or insecure software. On the appropriate project, an omission like this may cost millions of dollars. Make careful to investigate and consider all ideas.
