What Is Student Syndrome in Project Management?

Student Syndrome in Project Management, is the act of leaving all the work until the very last moment. The term was first coined by Eliyahu M. Goldratt. The main reasons behind the Student Syndrome are poor Project Management, concurrent and competing projects, and of course, our innate habit of procrastination. There are several disadvantages of the student syndrome, including (but not limited to), reduced quality and scope, as well as a stressed team. Avoiding the student syndrome is best done through Proactive Project Management and breaking down large tasks into smaller ones.
