PROJECT MANAGEMENT Begin with the end in mind!

Sage advice from an early mentor, my father

There are countless texts, seminars and articles on project management. All have the common elements of Gantt charts, work breakdown structures, schedules and budgets etc. However, before beginning a project most technical teams forget to ask the most essential question of all: “How does my management define success?” Is it to get to market ahead of everyone else? Is it to develop the most risk free solution for the end user? Is it to become the highest volume producer with modular capacity?

Once you know your management’s definition of success, you can develop a project management plan to support it. The Automation Association’s underpinnings for project management strategy are footed in the text, The Smart Organization – Creating Value through Strategic R & D*, by David Matheson and Jim Matheson.
