Is your project manager inflexible? Does he/she want
to stick to the plan even when requirements shift and
needs change? Unfortunately, life never works that way.

We’re managing projects in a totally different environment from 10 years
ago. And if we don’t shift away from archaic and inefficient ideas, we doom
our work to failure… and possibly, extinction.
