💥Conquering "The Great Stall" in project management + Deviniti's apps 🚀


👋 Welcome, Atlassian Community! 🚀

Ever heard of "The Great Stall" in project management? 🤔 It's that moment when a promising project hits a roadblock and stops dead in its tracks. 🛑 Today, we'll break down it in simple terms and introduce some cool tools to help you conquer it when using Jira. Let's dive in!

What's "The Great Stall"? 🚗💨

Picture a project that started with enthusiasm but suddenly lost momentum, like a car running out of gas. "The Great Stall" doesn't necessarily mean the project is canceled or behind schedule; it just means it's not moving forward.

Detective mode: What's behind it? 🕵️‍♂️

Several factors can lead to project stalls, leaving teams and stakeholders confused. Let's dig into them:

  1. Unclear & confusing requirements: The lack of clear project requirements is a common culprit. Projects should begin with well-defined objectives, avoiding the "Kitchen Sink" syndrome, where additional goals pile up, leading to confusion. 
  2. Limited resources: In today's fast-paced world, resources are often stretched thin. Having the right people dedicated to a project is crucial, but when resources are scarce, creative solutions, like temporary help or reshuffling priorities, become necessary.

  3. Lack of leadership support: Upper management plays a pivotal role. When they show interest in a project, it motivates the entire team. To gain their support, project managers must effectively showcase the project's potential benefits.



Gear up with Jira apps to smash "The Great Stall"! 🛠️
