Planning and Project Management

 

 

The measures to be taken by the staff officers for preparing the army

to enter upon active operations in the field

include all those which are likely to facilitate the success of the first plan of operations.

[Baron Antoine de Jomini]

 

Some thoughts

 

bullet

Planning is part of Project Management: for example, in Prince2, Planning is only one process out of eight

 
bullet

The Proj. Manager must be a leader: no other possibilities exist. If the proj. manager is not a leader, he can be responsible for a PMO (Proj. Mgmt. Office), but not for a project

 
bullet

Project Management is an art: so many factors are involved, so many human factors are part of the equation; nonetheless, without a methodology and hard study nothing is going to be accomplished

 
bullet

Detail planning can be taken care of in detail by others, but the Proj. Manager must check and control

 
bullet

Never forget that the world is not perfect; even if one used the perfect tool, he would not be doing enough

 
bullet

Adapt and win

bullet

A Project Manager must lead: planning is only one of his many tasks

 
bullet

A Project which is planned, but with no true leader taking decisions, is not a project

 
bullet

Detailed planning is necessary, but not sufficient to reach victory: other processes are necessary, decisions need to be taken, situations change, and so on

 
bullet

Planning is a discipline: hard work is necessary
