If we can do all the stuff we talked today about, you can achieve your goal no matter what.

Homework:
1. add Work breakdown structure.
2. recognize your Risks, response and plan.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20144:35 pm

In a team project, everyone should be aware of their roles and responsibility. And that person should be accountable for that particular task.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20144:34 pm

And that activity is done.

Ever risk should have an response. If it is a legal issue, we should be aware of that.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20144:13 pm

Madu asks the crowd to list down the solutions as well while they are writing down the risks.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20144:07 pm

Everyone working on listing down their risks.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20144:00 pm

A group task is next. Participants will come up with a list of risks which can impact on any project.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:58 pm

Rather than introducing new technology, stick with the existing technology to acquire new users, to avoid risks. – Madhu

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:54 pm

After sometimes we figure out that our Project is a no go. Anytime a project can fail.
Be prepared for the worst possible thing to happen to you. – Madhu

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:52 pm

Complete your work. Nothing less, nothing more.

Scope Time, Resources and Cost based on your experience.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:49 pm

We are back.
Project Management and Balancing it is.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:26 pm

We are about to break for a small tea break. And once we get back, Dr. Madhu will be talking about Balancing Time and Cost.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:22 pm

Once you are doing something good, you probably are going to get competition. That is where being unique matters. – Madhu

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:20 pm

Now we are in a big blue deep sea. Get a sailor boat. Discover your boundaries. Your limits are boundary-less. – Madhu

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:13 pm

Madhu says, despite her busy schedules, she always have enough spare time. That is because she has learnt to prioritize her activities.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20143:10 pm

How to save time? at the same time we have to manage cost.

Dr. Madhu asks the crowd to write their usual Monday routine. Including everything.

After scoping it all out, participants will add these to their smart-sheets.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:39 pm

We are going to stop this for a while, meanwhile teams will scope their requirements out. Identifying the work they have to do. recognizing the ones who have influence and interest over them.

Dr. Madhu will help them to sort this out.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:36 pm

Dont do extras trying to make your customers happy. you might get on their edges. – Madhu

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:32 pm

Start to the end, define your boundaries and scope them out.

Dr. Madhu takes an example from the crowd, where someone is working on a project, defining the boundaries, identifying parties who will influence and interest you.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:28 pm

Stakeholders are the people who will have interest and influence you. these people are the people you should know. Know your boundaries.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:26 pm

This is Madhu’s clear path to guide execution.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:23 pm

Anytime we do a project, it is unique. it should be. To make these temporary projects unique, it should meet some specific requirements.

Set to achieve one or more goals.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:18 pm

In GSL path, we are in stage 2. where you all should have a plan and have to come up with a prototype so that you can present that to your investor. – Madhu

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:16 pm

Above mentioned entries are not even worth a penny if the latter point, ‘communication and team work’ doesn’t go well. – Madhu

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:14 pm

We should have a clear path, so that we can do multiple projects at once.

Managing risks. what if something goes wrong? have a backup plan.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:11 pm

This is how Project based strategies work.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:09 pm

How do you do a project with out a plan?

In detail, you have to think about the risk. Work as a team, take responsibilities.

From Press From Press Feb 15, 20142:08 pm
