Microsoft Project Does Not Make a Project Manager

| Posted in Project Management |


ms project 2010 Through the years I have seen many people who use Microsoft Project (aka project management software) and claim they are project managers, I have also seen PMP certified people who don’t know the basics of Microsoft Project, and sadly I have seen project managers who are managing projects and don’t know the theory nor the software!

Scope Creep and Gold Plating are two sides of the same coin

| Posted in Project Management, Why Projects Fail |


coin 2 While Scope Creep and Gold Plating may appear as two different issues in project management, they are relevant and very likely to result in unsatisfied customers, the creep term is so true, you start a small change and accept it without enough analysis then you find yourself doing another change in order to implement the first one, and creep keeps going and going!
