Why should You Leverage on Giants?

Project Management is a structured way of getting things done. It has established processes and templates that professionals have tested and agreed upon as the standard way of doing things to achieve optimal results. And when you follow these templates, you are already following a guaranteed path that works, not just what I call “where belle face” approach.

When you leverage giants

  1. You are already capturing and using best practices for your project 
  2. It saves you time and resources since you are not reinventing the wheel 
  3. A realistic start and end dates for your project would be set and realized 
  4. It covers all the essential and necessary aspects of the project so that you do not get to miss anything 
  5. It accurately defines your scope and gives you the optimal quality in your deliverables 
  6. It optimizes your process and productivity

What are the prominent professionals keeping under the leaf?

  1. Proactivity is the hallmark of a professional project manager.

Proactive behavior involves acting in advance of a future situation, rather than just reacting. In organizational behavior and industrial/organizational psychology, proactivity or proactive behavior by individuals refers to anticipatory, change-oriented, and self-initiated behavior in situations.

  1. Nothing is particularly hard to accomplish if you divide it into small jobs.

Never manage a big thing as a big thing, always break things down! 

  1. Project Management turns you into a thinking machine!

‘’Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.’’ Criticalthinking.org
