Plan Project
I have found things change quickly on today’s modern projects. The process of planning is critical since it creates a dialog about deliveries and approach. However, the plans we create are valuable on the day we produce them and then questionable thereafter. We should never stop planning at an appropriate level of detail for the uncertainty at hand. Yet we should also never stop learning and adjusting these plans as new information emerges.

Motivate Project Participants
I have found the best motivators are intrinsic, coming from within, rather than extrinsic items like success or recognition. When we find out what people really want from a career and find a way to build that into their role motivation and output soars.
