Better Projects

Project Management is an industry buzz word.

People talk about it.

But no one actually does it.

At least that's how it seems.

I’ve worked with large organizations where you’d think they would have a structured project management office - but they don't.

Managing a project effectively is not really as bad as some people make it out to be.

The real challenge is typically with the company itself.


Just getting the whole organization to stop following the tried and true process of - Shoot, Ready, Aim can be a project in and of itself.


I've come up with a 5 step process that I follow and here it is.

Planning
Staging
Deployment
Review
Documentation


I like to break every project up into these five steps.

In this world of instant gratification and I want it now attitudes it can be tough to get buy in on the concept of having a plan.

You’d think most people would want to follow a plan but they really don’t.


These five steps along with the principle of - if you start right you end right - align with the concept of doing things right the first time.


They align with the notion of keeping things in budget.

And they align with the idea of getting things done on time.

They say if you want to be successful, you need to have a plan.


These five steps are my plan.
