Project Manager Question List
By Bill Gutches
Every project has topics that are relevant to its success and are rarely talked about. Why is this? What are these topics?
Here is an ever growing and refining list of questions that should be discussed by every Project Manager and their Project Team Members!
- What are the Business Objectives for this project?
What results / deliverables from this project are directly aligned with and can support / deliver the Business Objectives for each project?
What are the financial, operational, marketing, and/or compliance benefits that are expected to be derived from the results of this project?
What levels of security and permissions are necessary for the users in order to use and operate the results of this project?
What Risks are always present in managing each project?
Who is responsible for deciding on the fate of Change Requests (Accept and incorporate, Accept and schedule for later, Delay until further notice, Reject) once the project is underway?
