Compliment people. Magnify strengths, not their weaknesses.
Seek first to understand, and then to be understood.
I only believe the person who says it will take the longest and cost the most.
If you can keep your head while others are losing theirs, you have not understood the plan.
The most valuable word in Project Management is No.
How will you know how long a project takes to complete? When it is finished
“When a project is going well something will go wrong.”
“When things appear to be getting better something has been overlooked.”
“There is no such thing as a good project manager only lucky ones.”
If you wait until the project is complete it is too late.
Fast cheap good. You can have any two.
Everyone asks for a strong project manager until they get one.
A little risk management saves a lot of fan cleaning.
The more you plan, the luckier you get.
