Achieving people


Accepting that the purpose of any project is to deliver the objective of the effort on time and on budget using all the normal metrics, what is it about some projects that has them standing out as reference quality?

Projects are human, creative, problem solving activities and that’s a definite recipe for lumpy progress. Every project deals in the day to day of difficult delivery, distractions and disappointments. Yet, some projects shine.

The difference? Motivated people who are committed to and feel responsible for the agreed objectives, who believe that they have the capacity and capability to deal with whatever comes along, and have the energy and enthusiasm to keep on truckin’ when the going gets mud bound.

In other words, the recipe for stand out projects are characterised by clear, achievable objectives and clear sighted achieving people who care.

Skippy strategy: Great projects start with great people who care.
