Rules of Project Management

Rules are great things to guide us in life.  They give us boundaries.  Check out these selected "rules of project management" that I recently found from http://www.funny-haha.co.uk.  Enjoy!

  • It takes one woman nine months to have a baby. It cannot be done in one month by nine women.
  • Nothing is impossible for the person who doesn't have to do it.
  • You can con a sucker into committing to an impossible deadline, but you cannot con him into meeting it.
  • At the heart of every large project is a small project trying to get out.
  • A problem shared is a buck passed.
  • What you don't know hurts you.
  • There's never enough time to do it right the first time but there's always enough time to go back and do it again.
  • I know that you believe that you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.
  • What is not on paper has not been said.
  • A little risk management saves a lot of fan cleaning.
  • Everyone asks for a strong project manger - when they get one, they don't want one.
  • Warning: dates in a calendar are closer than they appear to be.
  • Anything that can be changed will be changed until there is no time left to change anything.
