An ounce of prevention is a pound of success as you plan your new project. Projects fail when preventable issues are ignored early and grow out of control. There are several threats common across nearly all projects, and each one of them is preventable -- Coyote Worx can help you plan ahead. 1) Scope -- Changing scope can sneak up on any project -- a cascade of widening project breadth can initiate an unstoppable feedback loop. But diligently protecting your sphere of responsibility from end to end, can keep this in check. I can help you plan ahead, so when inevitable demands broaden, you are able to hold the line. 2) Resources -- Front end resource constraints can actually help create creative approaches to project, but what happens when money, labor, time, and energy begins to thin in the middle of a project? The valley of death between an idea and the successful project is treacherous. Proper planning, budgeting, partnerships and allocation all work in tandem to keep a project afloat for the long haul. 3) Communication --- I can not stress enough how vital a communication strategy is. Who are your investors, and how are you sharing project updates with them? Who is the end customer/user, and do they know how your project will impact them, and on what timeline? Do vendors know when their deliverables are due? What is your plan for stakeholder engagement? A coherent, consistent, and continuous strategy Counter-intuitively, your job isn't to remember things for the project, it's to create an impervious system to catch things before they fall through the cracks -- a system robust enough to keep your mind free for creative ideation and real time problem solving. I founded Coyote Worx to help aspiring or accidental project managers keep their commitments. More than these three critical issues must be included in your project management plan.
