Commit and then say No – how to deliver a project

The Marathon Monks says ‘If You Commit to Nothing, You’ll Be Distracted By Everything’ – imagine an organisation committed to delivery and that saw everything not contributing to delivery as distraction that should be reduced – that would force a refocus of the PMO, HR, procurement teams in some companies (but not all). It would even require the word ‘No’ to be used.

It surprises me how many companies that want to deliver, but at the same time allow processes and initiatives to make it difficult to actually deliver, in some times it goes as far as making the project management office a team that doesn’t do anything to make the delivery faster, cheaper, better or less risky.
