focus on results
The preponderance of project management goes toward planning, leaving a lack of emphasis on execution. When IT leaders say they’re investing in execution, the investments generally go toward the technical elements. When project managers are running too many projects, there isn’t enough project management bandwidth to conduct flawless execution. 

In order to get every last detail right, leaving no breaches and no margin of error, the leadership can’t slack after creating the baselines. There needs to be enough strong leadership in place to ensure the technical resources are getting their homework done to the exact schedule, budget, and spec or there will be variances. When those variances go unnoticed, the scope creeps, and when there isn’t enough strong leadership to establish project control, the necessary adjustments aren’t made to save the project, and it goes off the rails.

MISSION: MAKE PROJECT FAILURE OBSOLETE
When projects go over budget, they fail.
When projects don’t finish on time, they fail.
When projects don’t meet the specifications, they fail.
When the specs fall out of alignment from the business case, they fail.
