Santa has PM skills!

With the holiday season upon us, the music is everywhere. I was listening to the song “Santa Claus is coming to town” and realized that Santa is actually a fantastic project manager.

1. He’s making a list – This sounds a lot like a project plan of key activities and resources

2.He’s checking it twice – Confirm it for completeness and accuracy. Also checking the plan allows for transparency into progress and insights into risks

 3. He’s gonna find out if you’re naughty or nice – Based on the insights, he can tell if there are naughty items (risks, issues, challenges) or nice ones (items on track)

So clearly he is managing a project plan and using the insights to determine what items to watch out for. Now the “sees you when you are sleeping” part is still sort of creepy….
