Drawing the line on bad project management

accredited courses

Understanding the basic components of good teamwork and how to implement it properly. 

In today’s fast-paced civilisation it’s absolutely crucial to work, learn and conquer at a rapid pace. It’s all about being headstrong and staying focused among strong competition. But in light of this, let’s also reflect on the words of philanthropist Ratan Tata:  “If you want to walk fast, walk alone. But if you want to walk far, walk together.”


While self-organisation is the fuel to pursuing individual goals, collaboration remains the framework of a company’s continual success. Agile is a method of project management that turns self-organisation and collaboration into neatly ordered cross-functionality.  

No matter the industry, projects become overwhelmed with tasks and tight budgets easily, and so it is up to effective teamwork to keep the project from falling at the last hurdle. This is where the Agile Methodology comes in.

The basic components of Agile project management:

  • prioritising complex problems into individual tasks
  • creating a realistic timeframe in which these tasks must completed
  • delegating each task to the appropriate person
  • creating an interactive and preferably visual platform for all team members to use
  • making provisions for strategy modifications
  • collecting early (and empirical) feedback throughout steps of the project
  • analysing issues in retrospect

By adopting an Agile movement to your company management style, you are opening the gates to proper team self-management and creating space to assess the concise direction of a project throughout its lifecycle. With so much repeated attention placed on every step of a project, there is little opportunity for time and budget to fall between the cracks.
