Today let's talk about common factors for successful projects. The Good PM.
Many hiring managers love to ask; "What was your favorite project and why?"
To tell the truth, The Good PM has successfully delivered so many projects, there is not any one favorite. So instead when I'm asked, I discuss critical factors to my success that applies to all my programs and projects.
Success is due to good planning, using the PM tools, skills and spending the time on communicating. Success is also due to hard work with the key team members to get the plan right. The Good PM goes through all aspects, scope, metrics, timelines, budget, identifying stakeholders, RACI charts, deliverables, sign-offs, communications, vendors, change management, risk management, tollgates, reviews,… and communicates that plan to all the stakeholders.
The Good Project Manager does not have failed projects because they use the PM tools and skills to fall back on. It is the PM’s responsibility to understand the health of their project. If there is a problem the PM must take measures to correct it and bring the project back to plan.
