How to end your day and get on your way You feel like you have given everything and more. It is now time to get off work and recharge. It is a wonderful feeling. For twenty minutes you can just catch your breath. Then it hits you. Your inner voice screams: “Didn’t you finish the stakeholder presentation and then send it to your sponsor?” You scream in pain. “Noooooooooo!” It doesn’t matter if it is at home or at work, it is back-to-work. You are now back in work mode and you answer a few emails. Then you work on some things to make your next day easier. You are likely to feel exhausted the next day. It would be a good idea to have an end-of-day wrap up routine. Depending on the nature and scope of your project, you may also need an end-of-week or end-of month wrap up routine. Project management best practices are well-known. You know that each phase, milestone, or project must be closed. This principle can be applied to your workdays. Consider the following as you prepare to end the day. Do I have good notes that I can use to pick it up again with minimal time loss? Did they expect the work to be completed? If so, communicate with them before you leave.

What have I done? Are any of my completed items allowed to be passed on? Who should know what I have done? Do I owe anyone any information? Is there anyone who is not ready to move forward with their/her work? You must provide all information before you go. Are there pending communications? You receive an avalanche communication every day. Are you able to respond when required? If you have not, you should make sure that you have a way of tracking your pending communications so you don’t forget. It is also a good idea send an “I’ll get back […]

How to create project documentation that doesn’t suck A conversation about management plans that was started by a friend of mine on Govloop recently got me going. Over the past few years, my thinking on documentation has changed. I don’t believe I know everything, but I do think I do. What makes project documentation so bad? When it comes to project documentation, there are many common mistakes people make.

Text only, very few visuals Documents are generally longer than short books. Over reaching the intended scope of the project in the weeds Assume that the person reading the documentation are chimpanzees This article describes a hypothetical alternate universe that has no connection to reality Written for the wrong audience – trying not to please management, but making it useful for those who really need it Who Will Do It? In my experience, there are three types of people: New project managers who believe that templates and paperwork are what project management is all for. Analyse Paralysis is a common […]

How to connect with people in your target organizations. In my Project Management Career newsletter, one recurring theme I cover is how to target organizations rather than focusing on a job title. My experience is that putting out resumes and applications on job boards is the most ineffective approach. Unfortunately, it’s what most people do. After sharing my story of being laid off, I received this reply. Josh, very inspiring story indeed. I have also targeted a company. How do you network within the company if no one knows you? What or who do I target? Rogelio, this is a great question! This topic is covered in detail in Project Management Career Coaching. Here are some ideas. No matter where you are, strategic focus – Building Relationships. It’s not about handing out business cards to everyone you meet. It’s not an easy process. It will take time. It should be continuous and not only when you need it. Your efforts in networking and building relationships should focus on helping others. This should be your primary goal. When you have questions or need referrals, you have already spent months or even years building strong professional relationships that you trust and like. Example tactic – Professional groups PMI, IPMA/asapm and PRINCE2 APM are just a few of the many organizations that offer local, regional, and international memberships. Local groups are especially great. For example, there is a PMI Chapter in my area that provides plenty of opportunities for new and aspiring project manager to meet other project managers, PMO director, and other peers. Even if you’re not a social butterfly (I am not), you can still have a conversation with someone to find out about their work. The best way to get to know someone is to ask them good questions and listen with interest. People love to share the most important aspects of their careers. It’s best to not interrupt the conversation and take over the conversation. Many new project managers ask me questions and I reply with “Well, that won’t work because of x,y,z.” I think I’ll do abc instead. What did you ask for? It sounds like you already know everything. ?I have to go now. If you ask someone to give their opinion, it’s a good idea to thank them for taking the time and effort from their own experience to answer your questions. Example tactic – LinkedIn. As long as you keep in mind that your primary goal is to build relationships and help others, LinkedIn can be a great tool. LinkedIn is a useful tool. I cover more details in my project management training. However, you can use LinkedIn to:

Do your research on companies (along with Google and talking to people). Find out the structure of staffing within organizations Referrals and introductions are a great way to connect with people who work at or have worked for the companies you are interested in. As you would face-to–face, ask them questions about the work they do. Ask experts for their knowledge and experience in groups or get answers Find out when people in the network are looking for work and help them connect with people you know. Give a recommendation to people you have worked with (and naturally, build your […]

How to conduct a Lessons Learned session. We all know that learning from mistakes is a good practice and part of our professional responsibility. It doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone does it. This is an easy and efficient way to do it. This approach was taught to me by a consultant when I was a novice (and accidental) project manager. This approach is still my favorite! Invite your team to a session on lessons learned. It is important that your team knows the purpose of the session so they are prepared to share. You should not attend if you think your team won’t be able speak freely in front you. Although I doubt it will happen to you, I have not seen it happen yet. However, you want your team to be able openly and honestly share their opinions. It is now time to learn from the mistakes. This is how you can approach it:

Start with “Things we could do better/differently?” Explain to your team that everyone will have the opportunity to share their ideas. Lessons learned are not meant to be personal. JOE shouldn’t go on vacation. The lesson is that important resources should have back-up resources to cover for absences like vacation, sick time, etc. Let the team know that everyone can speak but not all of them have to. If a member of the team has nothing to offer, they can say “pass”. Three times around the room. Each team member has an opportunity to share their lesson learned or to […]

How to commit suicide by networking

It has happened several times in recent years. In a desperate bid to get a job, capable and well-meaning professionals commit networking suicide. Here’s the Skinny I have received many broadcast emails in which I am among the many people in my BCC line. The title refers to the name of the person or the type job they are seeking. The email body is their resume. These people are not my friends. They may have my email address, and they may be subscribers of one of my newsletters. However, I don’t know Adam. They’ve never contacted us before. They have […]
