There are several issues that can cause a project to not meet its scheduled deadline, such as poor planning on the project manager’s part or even not hiring enough workers to complete various tasks.  Complex projects will require thorough organization and planning in order to stay on track.  Also, any changes and updates to the project or even contractors providing poor quality or slow service can cause the timeline to be pushed back. Team members must stick to the timeline, provide regular feedback to the project manager, and understand all required tasks in order to ensure that a project is completed on time.

The critical path helps to identify the most important tasks that are required to complete a project, which can help to create a timeline, and will allow team members to best understand exactly what is needed in order to ensure the project is successful and finished on time.
