Project Leadership 1: The First Three Steps to Every Project

Project Leadership 1: The First Three Steps to Every Project

David Barrett

Sometimes project managers move far too quickly into the project without doing the required groundwork first.

This ProjectBite highlights what, in my mind, are the critical three steps that we should all go through at the front end of every project: ask the right questions before you commit, get the requirements right, and find your people. Miss one of these and you could be in a great deal of trouble.

This is the first in my series on project leadership highlighting the most popular blog posts of my past six years on this subject.
