Eureka: Reasons Projects Fail

#27 Rule

Personal time is very important. You must be careful as a manager that you realize the value of other people's time (i.e., the work you hand out and meetings should be necessary). You must, where possible, shield your staff from unnecessary work (i.e., some requests should be ignored or a refusal sent to the requestor).

#26 Rule

If you have someone who doesn't look, ask, and analyze; ask them to transfer.

Done Manifesto

The Cult of Done Manifesto

1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.
2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.
3. There is no editing stage.
4. Pretending you know what you're doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you're doing even if you don't and do it.
5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.
6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done.
7. Once you're done you can throw it away.
8. Laugh at perfection. It's boring and keeps you from being done.
9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.
10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes.
11. Destruction is a variant of done.
12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done.
13. Done is the engine of more.

Uma questão de perspectiva

There's a new PMO Manager in town

Top Ten Mistakes Made by a New PMO Manager (with tongue mostly in cheek):

* 10. Selling his/her house to be closer to the new job.
* 9. Buying stock in her/his new employer's company to demonstrate commitment.
* 8. Failing to understand that PMO stands for "Project Managers are Opposed."
* 7. Believing what was said about senior management commitment during the interview process.
* 6. Believing what was said about the skills of the PMO staff during the interview process.
* 5. Thinking: "how hard can it be to get this organization to support something that is clearly in its best interests."
* 4. Thinking: "how hard can it be to get the project managers to support something that is clearly in their best interests."
* 3. Planning to hire an outside organization to develop all new procedures.
* 2. Deciding that better project management training is all that's really needed.

And the Number One mistake ...

* 1. Taking the job.

#25 Rule

Always try to negotiate your internal support at the lowest level. What you want is the support of the person doing the work, and the closer you can get to him in negotiations the better.

Vale a pena pensar nisto
