Project management parables!

Here are some project management parables, what do you think?

  • A problem shared is a buck passed.
  • A little risk management saves a lot of fan cleaning.
  • When all’s said and done a lot more is said than done.
  • If everything is going exactly to plan, something somewhere is going massively wrong.
  • Quantitative project management is for predicting cost and schedule overruns well in advance.
  • To estimate a project, work out how long it would take one person to do it then multiply that by the number of people on the project.
  • Projects don’t all fail in the end, they fail at the beginning.
  • Meetings are events in which minutes are kept and hours are lost.
