The most important part of it has its reasons outside a project - then we call it external indicators. The most typical reasons of this pattern are the following:- Market environment  -  competitive goods, focusing on opinion making bodies, changes of the requirements of clients etc.  - Legal system - acts which are changing (internationally, nationally, locally…) etc.- Appearance  of the most modern outcomes - technical development, research on discoveries, implementation of new tools etc.- Changes in clients' company - reorganization, acquisition, financial problems etc.- Social and political determinants - political depression, regional communities' strikes etc.Certainly, these examples are only a  part of the complete register which is likely ever-lasting. On the other hand, complications have their origins internally as often as externally.

It can concern project manager, team members, suppliers and associates.It is quite easy to cope with these both internal and external problems when a project team uses web project management tool which helps controlling project changes and evolution.Essential advantages of these types of software  are firmly linked to networking operation which are often used in today's businesses.
