Project management is often viewed as a necessary evil. There are many funny (and unattributed) quotes that speak to the complexity of the project management challenge. For example:
“A little risk management saves a lot of fan cleaning.”
“A project gets a year late one day at a time.”
“If project content is allowed to change freely the rate of change will exceed the rate of progress.”
“If you can interpret project status data in several different ways, only the most painful interpretation will be correct.”
The point–project management is filled with challenges and not for the faint of heart. But “oh what a feeling” when you bring your project in on time, under budget and with the loud praise of the customer. When that happens, you know you did something good!
We need your inputs and opinions for the October edition of The New Face of Leadership.
We will collate and report results for multiple choice questions. The last question is an optional short essay opinion question. We will feature selected responses to this question (about 250 words + digital photo and short byline) in the opinion column Based on Your Experience.
Thanks for your participation!!
