Project Management Game

A bit old bt
Many project managers feel as if their role is more of a game than a job. Some project managers play to win, some simply wait for the next roll of the dice, and others haven’t got a clue how to play. Many project managers are accomplished at playing the PM game and are able to deliver spectacular results. Others simply don’t know what they’re doing and cannot deliver because they clearly don’t understand the rules of the game.

Once you start playing the "Game of Project Management," you soon realize that there is never enough money, people, and time, so you have to call on your interpersonal skills to get what you need to get the project delivered.

There are two fundamental aspects regarding the human side of project management that are important to remember:
People influence a project’s success or failure.
A project problem can only be resolved by people.
So, if it’s people that form the core to any project, let’s look at the way many project managers play the people game. A successful end result means everything to project managers. They cannot afford to fail because executives are always looking at two key things:
Who’s putting money into the coffers—i.e., delivering on time, staying within budget, keeping clients happy, etc.
Who’s taking money out of the coffers—i.e. missing milestones, allowing conflict on teams, going over budget, experiencing unhappy clients, etc.

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
