Project Management in under 8 minutes – Video

This video from Chris Croft ( tells us in twelve simple steps a process for planning and then doing your project in only 8 minutes.

Project Management can be simple! You don’t need lots of Maths, or forms, or PRINCE2, just the common sense APM method which I have explained here as a twelve step process for planning and then doing your project. This 8 minute talk tells you all the main points, but of course there is more to learn than this – if you think it looks good then come on one of my courses!

The 12 steps are
– define the project
– list the tasks
– estimate the cost and time of each task
– plan the dependencies and longest route
– speed up the project plan if necessary
– create a Gantt chart (I love Gantt charts)
– check you have the resources required
– think about risk
Start the project
– monitor progress
– monitor cost
– adjust your plan if necessary
– review and learn from what happened
