Lee Iwan has written a great article on a beginners guide to project management. He gives a 16 steps of outline in organizing any size of projects. He hightlights the importance of participant and team members as human resources are the key for project success:
In my experience, projects must; actively involve all the group members, have excellent communication and access to project information, have a shared desired outcome, have specific dates for completion of tasks, and have all the required tools (when needed) in order to finish.
If there is no enthusiasm in the group, your project is dead or doomed to be incredibly dull and tedious.
It’s all about very simple questions; what, where, who, how, when, how much, and fixing specific dates and commitments from the group members. The key to success is the leadership and maintaining the level of enthusiasm of the group members, mixed with the correct resources and tools available on time, and a shared sense of urgency in order to bring the project to completion…
No matter if you are organizing a small function in church, or a big corporate project, this is a great outline to keep and use – And definitely worthwhile to bookmark.
