Everything’s a Project

Whether it’s an anniversary party for your parents, a product to launch next quarter, a new employee to onboard into the team, or a kitchen renovation — everything’s a project. And a map will successfully get you from point A to point B, all the way to the finish line.

But sometimes the hardest part is just starting. That’s where a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) really shines.

Our recent webinar guest speaker, Jeff Kearns, really made a compelling case for why one should never skip the WBS in their upfront planning. If you missed his session, you can still catch it by clicking on the link below, and we’ve included some other helpful resources as well:

All the official and “accidental” project managers among us can take heart in knowing how critical our project management skills really are — and that there are great tools like the WBS to keep us on track!

“Did David really just ask about the deadline for this work package?”

Yep, and that’s a red flag. It means that David, and likely others, have missed a beat and are no longer walking in pace with the rest of the team. 

Maintaining team alignment is the never-ending duty of a project manager. Sometimes it involves more frequent communications. Sometimes it means you need more effective communications. We talked to project managers around the globe to learn what works best for them when it comes to keeping a team aligned, then we compiled their answers in a handy eBook for you.

In this ebook, we’ve outlined 5 key ways to use maps to drive (and keep!) team alignment. We even went one step further and created map templates for each stage of your project.

All of the templates included in this eBook are downloadable with a simple click (we sure do like the share and publish capabilities in MindManager 2018 for Windows, don’t you?).
