I first read Robert Buttrick’s excellent book The Project Workout* when it was published in the late 1990s. This book — a UK best-seller — is an essential read for project management professionals and business leaders who intend to carry out beneficial change in their organisation.
It introduces a simple yet effective project management process framework.
The other day I had a brief conversation with a project manager who explained that their current project was nearly completed. He talked about the project initiation document.
Apparently, it hadn’t been signed-off.
In a whisper he confessed that it wasn’t finished.
