“No man is an island”

No Man Is an Island is an expression emphasizing a person’s connections to his or her surroundings and/or other persons. This is especially relevant for working on programs in corporations today. Solutions and organizations have become very complex and inter-related and therefore it is critical that Project Managers recognize that they can not run their programs in isolation. This means that Project Managers need to recognize this and act accordingly….

  • Collaborate with other teams and stakeholders
  • Recognize the other stakeholders and teams
  • Work within company standards and guidelines
  • Ensure communication occurs with appropriate stakeholders and dependent parties


So if you or your teams think that you are an island and isolated from others, then you need to look at the map again as you may be one state in a larger country.
