I was prompted to right up a short note on what I think could help in Project Management: the Jack Bauer approach!
Now, all joking aside, by this I mean a ruthless focus on what needs to be done to achieve the end goal; and not only this this but a constant focus on each day. On long, or political projects, there is always obstacles that need to be overcome; this is the norm. Hoever, if there was a view taken that delivery is “what saves the world”; I am sure there would be a new found focus on project delivery.
Oh, and I never rule out torture.
