Develop a Plan

“Let’s just get started—we know what we need to do.”
  • Bart Gerardi


I can imagine an experienced project manager reading the title of this chapter and deciding to skip ahead. I’m sure you think you know how to plan a project, and you probably have the documents and scars to prove it. But to a no-drama project manager, planning isn’t just about creating a schedule, a Gantt chart, or a work-breakdown structure. Well, it’s also that; but planning is mostly a mindset, and it’s possible to have all the artifacts of a plan, such as a schedule, without committing any acts of planning.
