- May 9, 2007Anything that is "published," and can have a finger pointed at it, becomes this way. "Look it says right here on page 33 that you must do step X before step Y." Even though that might not work for your organization -- you'll get people who are more comfortable with the scapegoat.People stop thinking for themselves and instead look for something to tell them the solution. Then accountability is rationalized away because, well -- "I was just doing what it says to in the book for this situation!"...religion comes to mind when I think of this concept.Nicholas

However, Don't you think a projecgt management
cookbook, or guide etc, could be useful!?!
(here I am not criticising what you've written below,
I'm just wondering).

The traditional C-and-C means of executing projects
(in an IT setting) must be having something in value
for us. Maynot be the general Command and control
approach, but some aspects. Maybe the way QC is set up
independantly, more likely risk management, etc.
