Yoda and Project Management

I have been working in the project management for many years.   In the end, it always comes down to Star Wars not just in the movies but also in management.

The final computer-generated Yoda as seen in t...

Skywalker: Yoda teach me the ways of the force (aka project management).

Yoda: To the end you must seek, prepare and find your answers.

Skywalker: I want to be a Jedi like my father.

Yoda: A Jedi you want, you’ll get there – um? Concentrate and trust your instincts, you must.

Skywalker: How do I know I am on the right path? My father turned to the dark side.

Yoda:  Train you will and stronger you become.  Powerful is the force, find it’s use for you.

LESSON:

1) Start with the end in mind and work backwards

2) Plan to the goal

3) Review and monitor your progress

4) Nothing is simple or black & white, learn and adjust – respect all experiences

5) Keep going forward

Yoda: May the force be with you!
