The Secret Sauce to Progress Management

Successful projects require people working together toward a common goal. Whether you are using a Top-Down or Agile approach, work on these imperatives:

  • Collaboration 
  • Inquisitiv-ity (I made this word up)
  • Emotional Awareness and Regulation 
  • Civility
  • Unconscious or Conscious Bias (what am I assuming that isn’t right?)
  • Equal not better roles – PM is no longer the BOSS
  • Simplicity - avoid crazy levels of tools that confound the Product Owners / Customers
  • Small, ‘done’ pieces prioritized by the customer 

“Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is Success.” Henry Ford
