  14. Risk Evaluation and Management Different expectations between MOTT and Project Team causes project delays and unclear project direction Communicate at the beginning between stakeholders and project manager frequently. Define specific requirements definition and get approval before starting. Report to stakeholders periodically to make sure the right expectations.
