some lessons and observations
Some Lessons and Observations
  • Elaborate, paternalistic and confusing frameworks and requirements
  • Unrealistic expectations (much too ambitious given the resources and time frame)
  • Poor consultation practices:
    • Special approach for “development” assignments
    • Approach based on rigid rules
    • Tendency (perhaps expectation) to complexity
    • Jargon-laden partners
    • No follow through
  • A checklist mentality
  • PMS’ not built on or related to business processes
  • A focus on outcomes versus achievement
