3 Key Principles of Project Management
Projects can be very complex. But don’t fall into the trap of thinking you need fancy tools or the latest trendy Project Management methodology to make your project successful.
If you apply these three principles to your projects, you'll have a solid foundation for any process, method or tool you use.
Be Clear about Project Scope and Purpose
Bring clarity to the project for everyone and everything involved by making sure you fully understand the scope and purpose of your project.
This clarity of purpose means you can then make sure everyone on your project team is moving towards the same objectives.
Maintain a Positive Attitude with Project Stakeholders
Use the power of positive thinking to get the best results when dealing with your stakeholders and project challenges
You are only successful through the achievements of project team.
If you're always grumpy or complaining, nobody will want to be around you, much less help you progress key project milestones. So smile and treat others well and you are much more likely to get their full commitment on your project.
And all projects have challenges!
Your positive, can-do attitude will not only help you solve the challenge, it will motivate your team and help spot the opportunities challenges present.
Communicate at all stages of the Project
Your project will fail if you don’t communicate effectively.
Whether you are gathering information, assigning project tasks or monitoring results, you must communicate often and effectively.
Remember to communicate with your project stakeholders early and often. Good news or bad, you need to earn the trust of your project stakeholders and secure their support.
