Many of those sorts of failures can be ameliorated by planning, communication and practice. If you know someone is going to be late to stack up, put them somewhere that they don't have far to run to the stack point, or make them the stack point. For our learning raid on V&T, we placed five raid markers along the places where the ranged were supposed to be, then called it out in vent (go to blue... go to green... go to red...) and we put our most-likely-to-turret healer in with the melee stack.With Chimaeron, it's nice because you can tell people precisely where to stand before you wake up the boss. You don't have that luxury with many encounters, but raid markers can give you a boost in that direction. Also, there are often nice empty areas, once you've cleared trash, where you can practice movement for various phases. I wish my raid leader would use that sort of thing more often - every time we do a practice movement before a pull we seem to get exponentially smoother in the next run.
