Scrappy Project Management - Through Author's Eyes

Given a choice, many teams under-plan or don’t plan at all. And yet, every hour of planning saves about a day of wasted time and effort. Doing our "best" is little comfort when we fail to achieve the results required. And, regardless of the quality of our plans, executing with excellence is where many teams struggle.

Enough is enough! Stop managing, and start leading your project teams to the success that they deserve. Fast, Focused and Flexible, this is Agile Project Leadership at it’s very best! Based on her globally popular book, Scrappy Project Management, we’ll see project management through Kimberly’s scrappy eyes as we explore each scrumptious chapter:
• Be completely & unrepentantly obsessed with the “Customer”.
• Prioritize ruthlessly, choosing between heart, lungs & kidneys if necessary.
• Provide shared, measurable, challenging, & achievable Goals as clear as sunlight.
• Create viable Plans & Schedules that enjoy the team’s hearty commitment.
• Explicitly identify and plan to mitigate detestable Risks & delectable Accelerators.
• Assure that Roles & Responsibilities are unmistakably understood and agreed by all.
• Challenge Assumptions & Beliefs, especially insidious self-imposed limitations.
• Manage the Expectations of all stakeholders: under-promise & over-deliver.
• Anticipate and accommodate necessary and inevitable Change.
• Engage in effective, vociferous & unrelenting Communication with all stakeholders.
• Practice an “Attitude of Gratitude.” Celebrate success, and some failures, too.
• Learn from experience. Make new and more exciting mistakes next time!

Reading a book about exercise won’t make your muscles stronger, you’ve gotta go to the gym and workout! This is a “learning laboratory”. Kimberly’s lively and engaging workshop approach will equip you and your team with practical techniques that you can immediately apply to achieve significantly better results in your next project.

High level overview of the scrappy project management to introduce people to the concepts, provide a framework for their ongoing learning, and serve as a helpful review for more experienced people.

More experienced people who have not had formal training may also benefit by having a framework to help organize their knowledge and experience.
