Join Chris Croft for an in-depth discussion in this video Define your project, part of Management: Top Tips.
- Step one, define your project.…This is probably the most important of the 12 steps.…It's the biggest reason why projects go wrong.…They're not clearly enough defined.…Think if you've got multiple stakeholders,…you need to make sure that everybody…buys into the same three key factors.…So, the three things you must get defined in writing,…with all your stakeholders, are the costs,…the quality, and the time.…How much money are you about to spend?…What are the deliverables they're expecting?…And what's the time scale?…If you have got multiple stakeholders,…the best thing is to have a kick-off meeting,…where you get everyone together…and everybody agrees and buys into those three things.…
At this meeting, it's important…for the Project Manager to be assertive.…Don't agree, don't promise to deliver things…that you know you can't.…And this is where planning makes you stronger.…If you've got a detailed plan, you can use that…as an arguing tool and you can say, look,…it's not possible to deliver this and this is why.…
