Building legos

The other night before going to bed, I was explaining to my son what I do for work. I was trying to think about how a ten your old could understand Project Management so I told him a project is like building a big Lego set (he loves to do this). I told him that we had millions of pieces and needed to put the set together in a certain timeframe.

  • We have a team of people who figure out what colors to use
  • Some people work on designing the final set
  • Some people build the set
  • Some people make sure that the set is built correctly



He seemed to understand what I was saying so I suppose the metaphor works. Now I am just waiting for him to ask me why a company would spend $200 Million on a big lego set.
