Managing and Monitoring Quotes
Once the planning phase is over, it’s on to managing the project right? Here are some good mentor quotes to live by:
4. I’d love to offer up credit for this quote (author unknown), but it certainly rings true for managing a project:
“A project gets a year late one day at a time." How true is this quote if the project leader fails to monitor and manage the project? A must abide by quote for sure!
5. Alvin Toffler said of managing change:
“On Change Management It is always easier to talk about change than to make it." This certainly means as a project manager, you should capture not only a great change management plan, but utilize change control processes to avoid resistance to change.
6. If the Agile Methodology is your game, you must be prepared to manage iterations and sprints. Another unknown author said of managing projects:
“At the heat of every large project is a small project trying to get out." With so many different types of project management methodologies, learning how to manage phases makes this a good mentor quote to follow.
7. I wonder here, why so many project management mentor quotes are offered by the unknown? Unless, indeed they have tried and failed and learned from their mistakes only they’re not willing to offer up a name along with insight! Another unknown author said when managing projects:
“If you’re six months late on a milestone due next week but really believe you can make it, you’re a project manager." This has to be the true test of any project leader—excellence and experience does make one succeed no matter what the challenge.
