Project management is very important. I can get consumed by it all. So many details, so little time.
Let’s get going on our scrum. Agile is the big thing. I must be agile.
But beyond budgets, milestones, scope documents and all the PM process I get overwhelmed with, there are some important issues for me to think about.
I need to think differently. Here are 2 project questions to start with.
- How will this project enhance the Customer Experience in a way that’s so ‘dramatically different’ that we capture new customers and retain old customers and grow our share of the business with them?
- And, will it markedly boost the ‘top line’? What will the impact on our mission look like?
How can I do what has never been done before I think? I can.
I need to think differently. That will lead me to act differently.
