Failure to plan correctly places huge risks on the succesful outcome of your programme or project. A plan that constantly slips or shows itself to be unrealistic will lose the confidence of sponsors and stakeholders, who may ultimately pull support, funding and sponsorship.
Poorly planned programmes and projects also risk:
Deteriorating Staff morale and retention due to over loading staff . They may initially respond with ' hero mentality' but will eventually leave the organisation through stress.
Loss of professional and corporate reputation, due to failuure to deliver to client or customer need, or the contractual obligation.
Resource Managers struggling to provide resources as the plans they based their resource rofile will prove to be false.
An unrealistic view of the capacity to change - Does the organisation have the capacity to deliver all these projects and at what rate?
Running out of margin or budget
A plan that is not based on what products need to be produced, what the expendable effort is and who will conduct the work are at best an educated guess, at worse fiction.
