5 Tips For Budding Project Managers
A surprising number of projects fail to meet their objectives, realize intended benefits or even make it to the finish line. Whether a project is a small one-off piece of work, or a complex, multi-faceted business transformation within a portfolio, as a project manager you should be focused on what should be done in order to increase its likelihood of success.
Here’s some key pointers that, if you address, will help you towards success.
- Start the project with success in mind
How a project is started is arguably the most influential factor in its success. It’s now that you confirm why the work is needed in its vision, objectives and expected benefits. This is the bedrock on top of which you base all other decisions.
The start is also your best opportunity to identify and get buy-in from project stakeholders. And you should be working closely with the project sponsor or executive at this time.
