Burning Questions on Commitment, Approval & Celebration

Every project crosses the milestones of the team coming together to agree to the aggregated plan; scope, schedule and estimates to get the work done, the approval of the plan by sponsors and stakeholders and celebration. We've answers some of the questions and situational problems related to these events submitted by project managers like you below.

Burning Questions

  1. What is the best way to get team buy-in to a project plan so that everyone commits to the dates?
  2. How can I be sure my team is really committing to the schedule we've proposed?
  1. Who does the project manager need to get involved in reviewing the project plan and who really needs to approve it, and why?
  2. There's big pressure to say that we're done, that this is ready to provide to customers and call the project done. But some of us don't think so. How do we stop Management from pushing us to release before we're ready?
  1. Should I still do any celebration if parts of the project didn't go well?
  2. How do you do a project celebration that is meaningful? Does anyone really care or will it seem weird and touchy-feely?

Problem Solvers

  1. I can't move forward in the requirements gathering process until a key business decision has been made, and the business isn't making the decision fast enough.
