Project Management Made Easy

Forests have been decimated and billions of pixels have been marshalled to document all the things a project manager needs to do. In fact, an effective project manager only needs to do 2 things:

  1. Create an agreed picture of the desired end state and the route to it
  2. Ensure that reality and the agreed picture remain in alignment

All the verbiage is about tools and methods to help a project manager carry out these two activities. Lose sight of these activities and the tools and methods generate value-free bureaucracy. Focus on these two activities and it immediately becomes clear how to select a tool kit which will help you deliver a project effectively.

Think about it. The DeliveryDemon has yet to see a project activity which doesn’t fit this model.
