- Let’s start with the why.
- Then, figure out what.
- Then, figure out how it will happen and who will do it.

- Then, we go through a process called iteration, where we update our draft plans to reflect reality and funding.
There are always tradeoffs, considerations about who will be on the project teen and who is paying for it, etc. I try to keep my project management processes as efficient and iterative as possible to ensure continuous integration and a clear understanding of what we are producing.

Don’t be intimidated about project management. He can seem complicated and complicated when you look at things like the PMI standard, or other certifications and standards related to project management. Good project management is just common sense.
Good Project Management is Common Sense Project Management can seem very complicated when you first start. After a while, you will find that it is a combination of common sense and science with a bit of discipline. Many project managers focus too much on the tools and techniques and not enough on managing people. These are the most important aspects of project management. Recently, someone commented on my online project management training. They liked it, but it was strange that I presented the information in a simple way. It was a high praise for me, and I still feel it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a new project manager, or if you’re just starting out in project management. After you have learned some of the technical aspects of project management, it’s about working with people. ?Most of my real progress in managing projects has been due to understanding the psychology of people, not understanding the tool. Most of the tools and processes that work are simple. If you know these fundamentals, you can adapt to any situation. It is not enough to manipulate numbers in a spreadsheet or a Microsoft Project file to make it real. While planning is important, the actual plan is far more valuable than the process of creating it. Many project managers I know have done a great job managing projects and teams, despite not having a degree or certification in management. However, I think even these project managers would be more successful if they were to approach it as a discipline. In my quest to view project management as a discipline, I discovered many common assumptions about people’s thinking that were simply wrong. Anchoring in project estimation is an example of something that people do every day, but don’t realize. Another example is multitasking, which is a common occurrence in all workplaces. It’s what happens when you don’t have a disciplined approach for managing work flow. The way I manage projects at a high level follows a specific process, even though each project’s implementation will be different.
