Project Management Perspective

2012-11-04_17-05-09I have been involved in Project Management training for more than 15 years, and the image above is one that I return to over and over again.

This image shows the importance of several important factors involved in effective project management:

  • Communication, Communication, Communication
  • Collecting Requirements
  • Stakeholder Management/Engagement
  • Project Quality Management (meeting customer requirements)
  • Project Documentation

You should always take the time during the Initiation and Planning phases of a project to actively listen to your stakeholders, to document the project/product requirements, to establish regular communications, to have a feedback loop for meeting customer requirements, and having enough formal approvals to show agreement during all phases of the project life cycle.
