Greetings Leaders!

As a seasoned Project Manager, here are the Top Ten Things that I do that makes me successful.

  1. Take time to assess the big picture. Why this project? Is now the right time?
  2. Understand the organization’s culture and tailor what you do to be most effective in it.
  3. Assess stakeholder expectations/fears AND manage them.
  4. Define what a successful project outcome looks like in real terms (Not on budget, on schedule). What does the organization want this project to accomplish?
  5. Determine organizational roadblocks to meeting project success and mitigate them.
  6. Develop a project strategy. How will you manage the project?
  7. Ensure the project has effective executive sponsorship.
  8. Take time to get the right people on your team.
  9. Establish clear roles and responsibilities.
  10. Use an appropriate project management methodology.

All the best!
All the time!
