Key Teachings:

Project management is fundamentally about the management of highly creative people. While core project management skills such as task or user story planning, scheduling, costing and tracking are critical, key project management concerns such as stakeholder engagement, benefits management, quality and risk management, team building and leadership are increasingly becoming the focus for contemporary project managers.

PM Plug-ins:

Over many years, Rob has developed a set of tools to assist sponsors and project managers deal with the diversity of views from stakeholders and from within their teams. The tools were designed aa a set of “lenses” to bring the differing views out, to encourage “fierce” conversations and to provide a common focus for those discussions. They have been proven to bring alignment from stakeholders and teams to critical project management concerns such as scope, objectives, benefits, quality and risk at the initial planning stages. They also assist in the on-going management of change throughout the project. They should be considered as Plug-Ins designed to supplement your core PM skills and techniques not to replace them.
