The phrase Project Management (“PM”) can have multiple meanings depending on who is describing it. It has become somewhat of a buzz phrase in business these days, which can cause a lot of confusion. I’m finding that many people and companies who don’t understand Project Management aren’t applying the techniques correctly. I realize that it can be very overwhelming for someone who doesn’t live and breathe it every day. I want to simplify PM for you and get you what you need. Here at The Happiness Bucket, I focus on teaching techniques that work and that build a happy, respectful and collaborative team. I want to help you see your projects through to the end, successfully. It takes the overwhelm away and breaks the process of managing a project down into manageable pieces.
My Project Management TechniqueI use a homegrown hybrid waterfall and agile project management approach. I developed this methodology because I found it difficult to find instructions on how to apply agile to implementation, process improvement, upgrades and other types of non-product development projects. Most agile training, at the time, focused on product development. I was able to develop my own techniques, which develops successfully collaborative teams. It also ensures successful non-developmental projects of all types. Although this method was developed with non-developmental projects in mind it can be used for developmental projects as well.
