While the uncertainty is tough, this pause may present a rare opportunity to reconsider your projects. Was your project risk maturity level providing enough certainty of outcome? Now you can take a breath and review. If things were heading in the wrong direction—or the in right direction, but too slowly—you get the chance to reset.
But when the project does restart, one thing is certain: You can’t simply pick up where you left off. Your team will be in a different headspace. Your contractors may have new personnel or different priorities. The context will have changed, perhaps imperceptibly.
