Don’t ruin your project!
Project management in law firms is becoming more and more prominent. As well it should, given the good it can do for keeping projects on track, on time, and within scope. If you haven’t already started using some project management principles with your intranet (or whatever other thing you’re working on), a good place to find helpful tips and templates is gantthead.com. Once you register for an account, you’ll have access to a wealth of PM information. Sign up for the gantthead lite e-newsletter and you get articles delivered right to your inbox, such as a recent one called How to Ruin Your Project. In it, the author talks about the bad decisions that can cause a project to fail, such as failing to learn from mistakes and inconsistent communication. Not only do the articles have a common sense approach, the entire website is meant to be a community of resources for project managers everywhere. Check it out!
