I am half way through a project and realise I maybe should have done things differently, can I back track or should I just move forward?

"It all depends on what you should have done. Go back to the aims, objectives and desired out come for your project, if you are still able to deliver them the answer is carry on. If you are unable to meet them you need to pause, complete the missing elements and then review the aims, objectives and desired outcome and ask your self can you now meet them.

Sometimes it is easy to do a bit of extra work to try and get the project back on track without losing the momentum and enthusiasm it has generated. Starting again it can be even harder to re gain by-in from your stakeholders."
