The research shows that you can actually shape the success and prevent failure by ensuring that these five conversations are held at regular intervals and by acting on the results.
The first conversation revolves around unrealistic deadlines. This meeting will address the issue of limited resources, and deadlines set without any consideration for reality. Next, you move on to unreliable sponsors.

No way your project sees light of day if this is the way your team functions. There are problems and you know the project is headed for disaster. So do your team members. But everyone is too chicken to bring it out into the open. You need a meeting to bring to the fore the fact that the king has no clothes on.
