Project Managers Plan Seemingly Every Aspect of Their Products—Except Culture; That Should Change

Project managers I talk with all agree: Culture is important in project management. It influences the quality of work, the communication with stakeholders, the results of teamwork and so much more. Yet when I ask project managers whether they have a culture plan, they turn silent. How can it be that they plan for deliverables, scope, budget, quality management, risk management and procurement management--but not for culture? Developing a people-first plan that builds and sustains a strong project culture rarely happens. And that needs to change.
