Projects: Suck We Do At Leading Them.

So really we don’t all suck at leading projects.  We do bring to the projects we lead our biases and blind spots and often they provide stumbling blocks.

I was reminded today that as a leader of a project that your first commitment is to the end goal of the project. To get there, sometimes you need to allow others to dictate how a task is accomplished and other times you need to “throw your project manager weight around” to take the straightest line from point a to point b.

The true trick is knowing when which one is called for. The distinction is often clouded by ego and fear which is the path to the dark side.
