The Circle of Project Management Ethos
“It’s easier to understand what we believe when we draw what we think.”
Stephen Cummings, Ph.D., Professor of Strategic Management, VictoriaUniversity of Wellington, N.Z. (Author of Strategy Builder: How toCreate and Communicate More Effective Strategies)
It’s difficult for us to commit to something if our heart’s not in it. This is true of anything in our lives—our relationships, our jobs, and our projects. The problem with projects is that without full commitment from everyone in the team—maximum emotional engagement—risks that are already high become higher. Loyalty and trust are reduced, communication isn’t as strong, thinking isn’t as enlightened, and people don’t work as hard.
