For this week’s blog I thought I’d do something a bit different so I came up with a fun quiz to find out which fictional project manager you are.
Hopefully you enjoy trying it out.
When planning your project do you have?
A fixed deadline and schedule backwards
Plan, what plan? Winging it has worked so far
Everything meticulously planned with multiple contingencies in place
A rigid schedule with no room for error
Your tolerance of risk is:
I’ll deal with it as it happens
More risk, the more exciting the adventure
Risks are identified, scenario tested and multiple plans in place to deal with them
There is no such thing as risk on my projects
How do you manage your budget?
Money’s not my problem
Better make sure all my expenses are submitted correctly to Finance
Money is tightly controlled and siphoned to where it’s needed
I have enough to get the job done and there’s more where that came from
When managing your team you:
Let the experts get on with the job
Interfere, get in the way & break things
Don’t have a team, I prefer to be a lone wolf
Rule with a fist of iron
How do you feel about governance?
They want to stop me doing stuff and having fun
I’ll pay lip service while it suits me and ignore them when it doesn’t
I don’t do governance
I am the governance
