No project runs its course without some project team issues or concerns. Any time you have a group of highly-skilled and highly-focused individuals working closely – yet often individually – on a team working toward a common project goal, you're bound to have conflicts and issues. Usually small, sometimes big. But you will have them – probably on every project to some degree.
