Chapter 5 of Scrappy Project Management offers a no-holds-barred view of project management in the real world, along with some of the funniest and most accurate project flowcharts ever drafted.
What this is
This excerpt from Scrappy Project Management covers one of the most common and most destructive pitfalls in project management -- the nearly universal resistance to actually planning anything. Given the option, most people will either under-plan or not plan at all. Kimberly Wiefling explains why planning is still important, even though schedules are almost always wrong and it's much more satisfying to simply charge ahead.
Why it's useful
"When there is a mountain of work piled in front of you and you're already late, the last thing you feel like doing is sitting down to set clear goals, clarify assumptions, and lay out milestones, owners and due dates for deliverables." Guess what? You should do it anyway. Planning saves time, it doesn't waste it. In this chapter Kimberly Wiefling suggests alternatives to the already-obsolete Gantt chart, and provides strength and encouragement when dealing with stakeholders terrified of accountability.
