Three Common Threads in Project Management Success
IT victors are committed to three things, according to Winquist:
1 – Bringing their people in: They keep everyone connected along the journey of a product by providing more context around the entire process so each player has the same common vision and goal.
2 – Empowering their teams: They understand people make better decisions when they understand the ‘Big Picture’ and when they’re empowered; these people also want to give more discretionary effort.
3 – Focusing on outcomes: They measure product launches through their ability to meet customer need and drive adoption (not just meeting deadlines); it’s about creating a positive outcome and experience that moves the needle, Winquist says.
