Problem projects are the only ones worth managing

It’s a simple truth, if a project will complete with no issues, then there’s no reason to manage it, conversely, only problematic projects are worth managing. Simple clear logic that is often ignored by everyone. It’s much easier seeing all projects as needing the same level of support and oversight….what would make sense, during the project initiation phase, is to determine the overall risk level of a project and set the project management support level required. This would reduce project costs and allow project managers to proactively focus on those projects deemed as high risk. As with anything else, a continued review and adjustment to the determination of risk level/pm involvement would need to take place.
