Dynamic marketing, branding & design strategies that span the gap between business & creative.

Daily Quote - Project Mgmt & Design

"Method goes far to prevent trouble in business; for it makes the task easy, hinders confusion, saves abundance of time, and instructs those that have business pending, both what to do and what to hope for."
- William Penn

No truer words have been spoken when it comes to getting your marketing & sales projects out the door. As a Certified Project Manager, I naturally gravitate towards method as opposed to chaos.

But too often people feel that momentum is more important than purpose. Hence another old adage, "haste makes waste." And there is no shortage of waste in most large corporations. The funny thing is that most creatives will identify with the above passages as well as project or marketing managers. For a designer to really put her best foot forward for her client, she must truly understand the what's and why's of the project. Having a standardized process that pulls out that information at the beginning of a project is critical to success. I've read that you can tell whether a project will come in on time and on budget as early as 15% into the project.

Put some method to the madness. And maybe the madness will slow enough to become more effective.
