Road Bumps in Project Management Pt. 2

Last week my colleague and friend Ivo wrote a short piece about his experiences in project management. I decided to do a second instalment, but in this article I'll focus on internal issues mainly. Now I'd like to make it clear that our company is dealing mostly with web stuff.
