I am my own PM hero

I am my own PM hero

I am my own PM hero

3
(OP)
I just completed a 2.5-hour meeting,
with 10 attendees,
from 3 different organizations,
using Teams online, where
everyone showed up,
everyone was on time,
everyone had the agenda,
everyone got a chance to speak,
nobody's voice was garbled,
nobody strayed off topic,
contentious subjects didn't blow up,
managers didn't need to shush their subordinates,
a way forward was made on many obstacles,
and I finished on time,
with no actions to follow up that fell upon me.

Bow before my project management greatness. bowleft

Eric,
You are correct. And I was typing from the "virtual pub".

Comcokid,
I have sat through plenty of meetings where the host read the agenda word for word in a garbled monotone through Skype. I'd like to believe this is my reward for enduring this long.

Awesome. What are you go-to principles for executing a successful meeting such as this?

RE: I am my own PM hero

for a start... based on my experience...

I just completed a 2.5 1-hour meeting,
with 10 5 attendees,
from 3 1, maybe 2 different organizations,

Rather than think climate change and the corona virus as science, think of it as the wrath of God. Feel any better?

271828,
The secret is to plan the meeting with several meetings in advance. Review what will be discussed in the later meeting, and prepare responses to issues that will be raised.

Sparweb, I don't mean to belittle your work in any fashion, what you achieved is remarkable... don't take my comments in a negative fashion. I know I couldn't have achieved it.

Comcokid,
You are vindicated. I did miss an action item, and it did land upon me. Fortunately I managed to do my thing and send it out in 1/2 hour, but I have to grant that I was not as scot-free as I originally claimed.

hi dik,
Nothing about this thread is meant to be serious, so no worries.

PS.
My signature is a nod to SLTA's signature line.
It's a bit more relevant when I post in the Pub - but I don't go there any more... Maybe it has served its purpose and I need a new line.

I just want to make it known that I wasn't trying to be negative. It's a good line... I liked Cass' ones where if you are walking on thin ice, you may as well dance... or unless you're living on the edge, you are taking up too much space... I can identify with the latter...
