"Project leader in 3 days - How to get your projects under control!" - this and similar misleading labels can be found in the project management consulting market for over 15 years - bold promises, certified standards and a lot of tools and methods.

More than just a toolbox

Overview

And, in fact, project management is a highly methodical discipline and can not conceal its origin from engineering sciences. What is clear is that every project captain who wants to be successful must know and master the basic methodological principles.

A filled tool kit is the necessary condition for good project management.

Organization-wide composition

Overview

The project team is made up of experts. Often the members come from different places and departments of the organization. In part, different hierarchies also appear in the project team.

In addition to the personal assistant to the Marketing Board, the administrator is also responsible for the development of the department, as well as the manager of the department, who are all used to a different style of management from their work or who are responsible for their own work.

Who knows the recipes, is not yet a star cook

Overview

But be mindful of a blue-eyed and mechanistic application. My advice is to use planning tools and checklists as what they are: methods of support.

After all, if you know the contents of several cookbooks and have the latest kitchen appliances at your disposal, you can not satisfy a twelve-person company with a multi-course gourmet menu.

From managing to guiding

Overview

But only who is the step to the real Guide and not only to manage projects, also meets the sufficient condition to be a successful project leader.

The mastery of tools and tools must be supplemented by the internal attitude of a project captain - through the effective handling of conflicts, demotivation, change of plans and team dynamics. It is about the factors that enable effective leadership and effective decision making under uncertainty.

Principal maritime serenity

Overview

Successful project managers go beyond the attitude of seafarious composure into the organization. Awakening and cooperating, they form coalitions, juggle with different interests and take care of the progress of the project.

As a man on the bridge, a project captain profits from his experience and methodological treasure. He knows that he will solve emerging problems from the situation himself and can not pre-regulate.

Between whitewashing and panic

Overview

Therefore, an experienced sea-goat never speaks pleasantly of a gathering storm, but does not immediately call everyone on deck and as a precaution distributes life-jackets. Rather, he expects bad as well as good weather and has the condition and functionality of the life vests already checked in advance.

The concept of maritime serenity describes a particular inner attitude: to recognize that things can run differently than planned, and that reality is not linear, but highly complex.

Farewell to the "when-then" thinking

Overview

It's about saying goodbye to the "if-then" thinking. The old categories "right" and "wrong" are replaced by "appropriate" and "useless". For a project leader, this means always thinking of alternatives and conceiving of plans as a possible path to follow, which can be adapted and changed at any time - and also represented to the project staff!

A seamanship-enabled project captain is light-awake, focused, well-prepared and using project and project management skills - but always as a person and not as a functionary of any management school.

Plans can also work out machines

Overview

Anyone who incorporates project surprises from the outset with his professional understanding of human beings instead of trying to get them out of their methods will take away any fright and make sure that the project processes continue to be useful.

This is exactly what the project manager is paid for. Because plans could also work out a machine!

The active leadership is important

Overview

This is often lamented by inexperienced project managers. In the end, the hierarchy is always powerful, they say, because they can distribute rewards and impose sanctions. If it comes to contentious situations, one is subject in most cases.

However, experienced project captains also know that they do not have to complain about the lack of disciplinary power when they rely on active leadership with personality.
