Re: What's Your Best Project Management Tip?

Hi, You may be a devotee of the PMI, AMP, Prince2 or even the Australian and New Zeeland project management association AIPM; any one of which will provide you with their version of the defacto worldwide acclaimed qualification, which is all well and good.

Re: Looking for the Opinions on PRINCE2 Training Orgs in London?

Re: Best Practice - Timelines and percent split

Hi, you didn’t say that you had several projects already completed. In this case I would open a spreadsheet and using cells A1:C3 put in the headings Planning, Coding and Testing.

Re: Best Practice - Timelines and percent split

Hmmm, I usually find that there are two trains of thought depending upon which side of the person’s brain is dominant. On the one side you have the mathematically ordered administrative type of person who loves to write list and has lots of rules for just about anything and on the other side you hav...

Re: What's Your Best Project Management Tip?

Hmmm, I agree with you to a point on that one, however, I am having a slight problem with the last line. I can agree that managing stakeholder expectations in the early part of the project prior to the completion of the planning phase is absolutely essential, no arguments there. However, during thes...
