Prepare for Business Case Presentation
I understand how executive management thinks. I highlight just the right aspects of the project and understand that unneeded details will only serve to complicate the approval process. Just the facts maam.
Estimate Effort
I listen to my staff. When estimating effort for a work breakdown structure, you need to listen more than talk. The people who need to do the work will best tell you what it will take. What's important is working within reality and not dictating unreasonable estimates.
Identify Lessons Learned
I love looking back at a project and assessing the lessons learned. We can gain so much knowledge from both success and failure. Understanding what works and what doesn't is how we hone our skills and better understand how to move through projects smoothly.
