Project management - a beautiful thing!

  • A user will tell you anything you ask, but nothing more. (And often only what they think you want to hear.)
  • What you don't know hurts you.
  • There's never enough time to do it right first time but there's always enough time to go back and do it again.
  • I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.
  • What is not on paper has not been said.
  • The more you plan, the luckier you get.
  • A project is one small step for the project sponsor, one giant leap for the project manager.
  • The sooner you begin coding, the later you'll finish.
  • A badly planned project will take three times longer than expected - a well planned project only twice as long as expected.
  • Warning: dates in a calendar are closer than they appear to be.
  • There is no such thing as scope creep, only scope gallop.
  • Activity is not achievement.
