I’m a great PM. We have projects. It feels natural that they need to be managed.
What I really want is collaboration, communication, and outcomes that match expectations.
We made a small change recently that I feel very good about. Instead of assigning due dates to projects, we are adding a next check-in date.
This way we can use that as a trigger to start communicate, summarize shared knowledge, collaborate on next steps, or mark the project as done (enough for now)
