Embrace Management … Not Madness

by MaryGrace Allenchey, PMP

While we may all enthusiastically anticipate and enjoy the excitement of collegiate basketball’s March Madness, we most likely expect our projects and programs to sustain a more Ready, Aim, Fire!!controlled delivery and finish!

The journey to perfection in any undertaking requires continuous application or practice of fundamental, basic techniques or moves.

Project and Program Management (PM) BEST PRACTICES enable successful, effective and efficient delivery of quality products and services…. products and services that meet or even exceed stakeholders’ functional specifications and performance expectations!

As you develop the game plan, and continuously monitor progress for your project or program, diligently apply PM BEST PRACTICES.

Starting with the end-in-mind and the principles of PM Vitamin C6®, produce and provide the following critical PM BEST PRACTICES deliverables not only for effective management, but also to ensure continuous stakeholders’ Communications, Collaboration, Cooperation, Commitment, Consensus and Celebration throughout the lifecycle of the project or program.

Stop the Madness

In addition, managing project and programs using PM BEST PRACTICES… ensuring you are defining all required tasks, and performing these critical activities/ tasks in the appropriate sequence… significantly reduces and ultimately eliminates the rework associated with “READY, FIRE, AIM”!

Providing the shortest time-frame or shortest distance between the beginning and completion… the two critical points…of your project or program, PM BEST PRACTICES is truly the STRAIGHT LINE MANAGEMENT APPROACH to products and services delivery!

Achieve your “WIN”… a successfully completed project or program … through rigorous application of PM BEST PRACTICES… EMBRACE MANAGEMENT…. NOT MADNESS!
