Poor Management of Projects - Mission Alignment

Mission Alignment. 
There is frequently inadequate communication between those requesting a project and those carrying it out. 

Many times we will see a manager or other leader say to a team "Have your team look into …" without discussion or clarification. The team, wanting to appear competent, will charge into the project believing they understand the mission. Too often, however, team members are dismayed to discover that they have not been addressing the real issue. The leader then, realizing the miscommunication, takes the time to discuss the project with the team. Our point is that this should have been done at the outset, and sometimes team members must take the lead in requesting more information to clarify the topic.
