Successful Projects October 23, 2008

Posted by Tariq Ahmed in Project Management.

PMI, Six Sigma(?) and similar institutions will teach you the basics of Project Management.  They’ll discuss concepts like: project scope, tasks, work breakdown structure, dependencies, resources, costs and project plans.  Theory is great, and all of those things will help your project.  But what happens when the 800 pound gorilla rears it’s ugly head?  I’m talking about politics.  Politics can destroy a project faster than I can electrocute someone.  In the coming weeks we’ll discuss the ugly side of projects.  The things they don’t teach you in school.
