Abstract
This "interview" summarizes comments made by Doug DeCarlo during a roundtable discussion titled "Is Project Planning Dead?" in October 1999. Doug's specialty (and the title of his 2004 book) is eXtreme Project Management: projects run in settings characterized by high speed, high change, and high uncertainty, where the rules of traditional project management no longer apply.


What this is

A summary of comments made by Doug DeCarlo as part of the transcript of the roundtable discussion "Is Project Planning Dead?" held in October 1999. F. Douglas DeCarlo is a Senior Consultant with ICS Group in Norwalk, CT and a project management "evangelist" and frequent speaker at local and national project management events. The interview was conducted for ProjectConnections by Mike Aucoin.


Why it's useful

This transcript originated as a roundtable discussion with several project management experts on why we should or shouldn't value project management discipline given the craziness of the modern business environment. As the discussion continued, we found we were especially interested by some of Doug's ideas advocating a new spin on project management.


How to use it

Whether or not you agree with Doug's philosophies, he has some thought-provoking ideas. Read this transcript to learn what he thinks about how much planning we should do, how we should get it done, and who should participate.
