Coffee chats, water cooler talk, quick huddles... As project managers, we thrive on these happenstance meetings as an opportunity to information gather. While I recommend these types of syncs are not utilized for decision-making, we can leverage this time as a chance to discuss pressing matters in a much more comfortable setting.
We are back for the second installment of Project Management Coffee Chat with Greg Christensen, Vice President of ProjectHub.com, who reached out to me with some follow-up questions about project management. To truly mimic the constraints of a coffee chat, I once again set a timer for 20 minutes, since we all know coffee breaks should not take any longer than that! Here's a preview of the questions we cover in this week's episode of The Everyday PM Podcast:
What are pre- and post-mortems?
What are the top five post-mortem outcomes that we must always document?
Are hidden stakeholders more common to specific sectors or project types?
What are some common, yet preventable, blind spots in project management?
When and why does it make sense to save a project versus scrapping it?
Do you have any questions you'd like to bring to the Project Management Coffee House? Feel free to reach out to me and we'll find time to take a break together.
