Why do we need planning?
Rework kills projects. And proper planning kills rework. In the project management world of rock-paper-scissors, planning is the rock to the rework’s scissors. With proper planning - SMASH! - no rework.
What to takeaway from this book...
My hope for the readers of this book is that they will go from wondering how to plan for and prepare to perform things like communication planning, risk management, preparing for and kicking off the engagement with the project customer, and creating a project schedule that is ready to use as a tool to lead a detailed and complex project engagement. I am not going to go through all of the details of each of these with you - that is for another book or another article or possibly even a textbook. What I want to give you is the wisdom and knowledge from someone who has been there and done that...someone who knows how it feels to succeed in each of these areas and also to fail in each of these areas and doesn’t want to see that happen to you. This book is for new and old PMs alike...a document that can help give you confidence in each of these areas because it lays some fundamental groundwork for each concept and activity and puts you in the position to move forward with success.
