One of the most important skills I teach the people I mentor is project management. I believe that project management skills are the key to making things happen in work and life.
This is my hand-crafted collection of project management quotes. Project management is the art and science of making things happen. The project manager leads a team on a journey (the project cycle), through trials and triumphs to realize a vision. Along that journey, project management involves balancing tradeoffs between cost, time, and scope. Along the way, it also involves communicating with stakeholders, influencing without authority, tracking and reporting status, tuning and pruning processes, and driving execution. Project management includes managing risks and issues. It also includes telling and selling the vision to get buy-in and support.
