You don’t have to be Ethan Hunt, the main character of the Mission Impossible movies to realize project teams change throughout the lifecycle of a project. In this episode, ‘How to Successfully Lead Mission Impossible Project Teams‘, I share correlations between the 1996 movie of the same name and the journey project teams take together from Initiation through the Closing phases of a project.
“A good plan can help with risk analysis, but it will never guarantee the smooth running of the project.” – – Bentley and Borman
Successfully Leading Mission Impossible Project Considerations
- There is a feeling-out period for those that have not worked together before
- Early project intelligence changes later in the project
- Testing 5 things in a lab yields different results than placing 500 in the environment
- We can never predict all of the upcoming bumps in the road
- Sometimes you have to scrap the original plan and make a new one
Thank you for reading about and listening to How to Successfully Lead Mission Impossible Project Teams.
Stay safe, wash your hands, and Godspeed,
