Things you’ll never hear a project manager say…

by Stuart on 19 November 2010

  1. I didn't see that risk coming!
  2. This whole project is based on a case study I read in the paper last week.
  3. I'm not sure this project is going to deliver any benefits.
  4. The project is running well ahead of schedule.
  5. I think we'll miss that milestone by quite a long way.
  6. We're charging you far too much to run this project.
  7. There's far more budget and time than is needed.
  8. I didn't actually have a plan; I was playing it by ear.
  9. I can't take credit for that success.
  10. How about paying us based on the success of the project?

NB. I can't remember where I saw this first.  I found it on my disc recently.  If anyone out there knows from whence this came, I will happily credit the original creator.  Until then, have a good laugh….
