What happens after the starting gun on a project? When everyone starts running, the plan starts to unravel and the projects begins falling apart!
- Equipment is put on back-order
- Requirements are discovered that weren’t listed in the plan
- People join the team
- People leave the team
- New information is discovered and assumptions are destroyed
The value of a project manager is not that they can develop a plan. The value of a project manager is their ability to react when the plan starts to fall apart.
What about you? How valuable are you after the starting gun?
Thanks for listening.
