What is Project Overload


Project Overload is a situation when a project manager has more projects to be managed than he can adequately handle at the same period of time. This situation is a typical condition to cause a severe workplace stress and task saturation, as the project overload is characterized by:

  • Tight schedules (managers haven’t enough time to restore between assignments and are always pressed for time);
  • Multi-tasking (a project manager should drive many tasks concurrently, so his working agenda easily becomes a mess leading him to the total burnout);
  • Increased coordination expenditures (a project manager needs to delegate tasks to his assistants and can make more errors than usually, hence administrative costs can grow rapidly);
  • A manager requires increased amounts of set-up time when he alternates between different tasks because switching between assignments for simultaneous projects is very exhaustive;
  • Increased work fragmentation leads to frequent disruptions and hence higher inefficiency when dealing with every particular task;
