There are myriad books about how project management should be done in the ideal world. And the Project Management Institute has created a whole Body of Knowledge, the PMBOK, to explain and codify a nice, clean, surgical description of what a project should look like from end-to-end.

Hog wash! Projects are MESSY! From the minute the project begins all manner of changes, surprises and disasters befall them. Unfortunately most of these are PREDICTABLE and AVOIDABLE. In fact, many project retrospectives produce “lessons learned” that are identical to the LAST project lessons learned. As a matter of fact, the #1 reason that teams fail to achieve their goals is . . . well, they don’t HAVE goals, at least not clear ones that everyone agrees upon. And the #2 reason projects fail is that communication is, shall we say, less than sub-optimal – it sucks.
