People + Process = Success
Project management isn’t just about managing logistics and hoping the project team is ready to give it their all. For a project to succeed, we need “informal authority” where team members feel inspired to work for you and are dedicated to ensuring a successful completion.

Identify a project’s stakeholders. Establish clear and measurable project outcomes. Create a well-defined project scope statement.
Identify, assess, and manage project risks. Create a realistic and well-defined project schedule.
Hold team members accountable to project plans. Conduct consistent team-accountability sessions.
05Monitor & Control
Create a clear communication plan around the project that includes regular project status reports and project changes.
Reward and recognize the contributions of project teams members. Formally close projects by documenting lessons learned.
