If its not on my list, it doesnt exist


There are many moving parts to projects and thus many things to manage on them. Here are a few I can think of…

  • Action Items
  • Decisions
  • Scope questions
  • Issues
  • Risks

In order to track these things we need a place to document them, determine who owns them, get dates to complete them and monitor them to completion. I tend to make lots of lists because otherwise we wont be able to remember all of the things in flight (let alone be able to manage them).

Therefore I like to say that “if it is not on my list, it does not exist.” By this I mean that if I am aware of something I can put it on a list to track it but if it doesn’t make the list then it doesn’t get the attention. I find that many people don’t keep track of open items and thus they stay open for quite some time.

Hopefully my blog made your list of entertaining and educational information.
