Projects - Plan for Success
I’m sure most of us have heard the phrase “poor planning = poor performance” or “fail to plan – plan to fail” and other variations on the same theme.
What it all boils down to is that success of any plan, process, initiative, project, etc, is usually determined by the quality of the planning process.
This is particularly true and vitally important in terms of Projects.
I’m sure you’ll agree that, amongst other aspects, the up-front planning stage of a project (or a series of related tasks e.g. arising out of a meeting) the “Why?” “What?” “Who?” “When?” and “How?” of the initial planning stage needs be clearly identified, effectively captured, clearly understood and well communicated.
