  • How to get to the moon
    (for 13 year olds)
    Or...
  • Project Management is Really Simple
  • And then...
    i.e. Practice makes you almost perfect!
  • Two rules on planning:
    Split planning up into lots of ‘plans’
    For each one, simply ask these 6 questions:
    Why...?
    Who...?
    What...?
    Where...?
    When...?
    How...?
    ‘Planning’ is actually more than just errr.. ‘planning’
  • A project manager doesn't need to answer any of those questions
    Or even understand those answers
     
    "All they do is":
    Communicate those answers between different planning teams (the 'who')
    Make sure everything is being done!
    ...That's "all they do!"
    A tiny point
  • Let’s plan our trip to the moon
    OK...
  • Why?
  • Who?
  • What?
  • Where?
  • When?
  • How?
  • Split up the really big project into smaller projects
    We'll have teams working on their 'smaller' projects (like building a rocket, or a moonbase...!)
    By now, we’ll have...
  • What does the Project Manager do now?
  • And now for a harder project...
  • Remember the beginning?
    Let’s plan for the cooking competition
  • The planning:
    Why...?
    Who...?
    What...?
    Where...?
    When...?
    How...?
    To plan for the cooking competition
