Sourcing for Innovation – Ep. 3: Project Management Anti-Patterns
By Adam Curtis
Anti-patterns are worst practices. They are common solutions to common problems that aren’t really solutions at all. Avoiding anti-patterns is critical to great software development and project management.
For the latest Sourcing for Innovation podcast, Catalyte’s project manager Robert Winkler discussed seven common anti-patterns and how to avoid them. They are:
- Cart before the horse
- Death march
- The 99% rules
- Over engineering
- Scope creep
- Smoke and mirrors
- Brooks’ Law
To find out how, with proper planning, clear and open communication and the desire to learn from your mistakes, you can stem the anti-pattern tide and manage better, more productive projects, listen to the full podcast embeded below. To catch up on past episodes, listen on SoundCloud or iTunes.
