Projects are Change

Trudy Robinson - Wednesday, April 06, 2011
Love it or hate it, projects are all about change.  The design, approval, implementation and rollout of something that will change.  It may be that a building is where it wasn't, or new software replaces old, or a new process changes how something is maintained.  So, because this is all about change - you can guarantee there will be angst.  Someone won't want it, or won't like it, or won't want to do it.  They may be forced to do something they would rather not do or to put up with something they'd rather not have.

So, a significant part of being a good project manager is to be able to see this before it becomes an issue for the project.  Sometimes it is about giving that person the opportunity to vent and be heard - then for them to see that their angst has some result.  It may be that they are concerned that their personnel can't cope with the project changes during BAU (business as usual) demands.  So - this being included in the risk register and being tabled to management, considered and planned for will ease the angst, and ease the pathway for successful resolution.

If there is angst, it is usually because someone needs a hearing.  It may or may not be valid from your perspective, but it's valid from theirs.  So, grant them that hearing, give them credibility in their experience and it'll go a long way towards them championing the change rather than obstructing it.

Happy days
regards Trudy

Unquestionably consider that that you stated.
Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web
the easiest thing to take note of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other folks consider
concerns that they just don't recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost you're working with? I've
loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I
must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good
web hosting provider at a fair price? Kudos, I appreciate it!

However, a salient fact which is usually omitted from such potential solutions is that we are not just talking about an aggrandized footballer here, we are talking about real people with real lives – and Tevez's [url=http://www.vidhayaksansad.org/nflnikejerseys.aspx]new nfl jerseys[/url] reluctance to ship his family half-way across the globe, regardless of whether he can afford to or not, is perfectly understandable given his offspring's tender years.
Manager Roberto Mancini initially granted permission for the short soiree (which was almost immediately extended to four days at Tevez behest) under the assumption that the forward would be flying home to visit the family and surroundings that he constantly pines for – instead, Tevez apparently flew to Tenerife to ‘clear his head' with a long weekend at a five-star villa resort.
As you're probably aware by now, Manchester City knocked back a (presumably ghost-) written transfer request from their obstinate striker Carlos Tevez [url=http://www.visbdev.net/forum/del/nikejerseysnfl.aspx]nike jerseys nfl[/url] over the weekend, a matter of days after he told the club's official website that he was ‘happy with the sacrifices' he'd been forced to make by committing himself to Sheikh Mansour‘s sideline in ber-capitalism.
