The Lazy Project manager and the ‘Art of Laziness’

Webinar: 

The Lazy Project manager and the ‘Art of Laziness’, Peter Taylor

Take aways:

  • ahead of the game
  • manage the sponsor
  • manage the creep
  • communication breakdown
  • in a crisis breathe normally
  • plan for the crisis
  • filter
  • delegate, delegate, delegate
  • prioritize, prioritize, prioritize

 

The session will cover the definition of productive laziness, the science behind the theory (yes there really is some), and will share some personal learning experiences that led to the creation of ‘The Lazy Project Manager’. In addition the audience will consider the three key project stages, one of which the ‘lazy’ project manager works very hard in and the second they should be in the comfortable position of enjoying the ‘comfy chair’ safe in the knowledge that the project is well under control.

Theory by Miss Anne Elk:

‘All brontosauruses are thin at one end, much, much thicker in the middle, and then thin again at the far end. That is the theory that I have and which is mine, and what it is too.’

The Lazy Project Manager’s Theory of Projects, from a Productive Laziness aspect:

‘All projects are thick at one end, much, much thinner in the middle and then thick again at the far end. That is the theory that I have and which is mine, and what it is too.’
