This post is the last one of my series extracted from Scott Berkun’s book: How to make things happen. In this series, I have already shared my thought and diagrams about making decision, building trust, dealing with crisis, schedules, not to annoy people, specification, how to improve your communication and about the middle game strategy and the end game strategy. Today’s diagram are some tactics to make things happen. The most important notion I learned in this chapter was the critical path. If you visualize your project as a tree, that would be all the node leading to the completion of the project. Their path should be as short as possible and resourced enough. Another notion I found really interesting is the common ordered list, simply put it is a top-down linked list allowing to prioritize the right work items.
