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.

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
