Debunking bunk

This brief article discusses lessons learned by an experienced project management practitioner that may reverse conventional wisdom; lessons include: strong team leadership is essential for success;consensus management can stall processes--while leaders should listen to and respect other opinions, they should accept accountability for decisions;learn who's trustworthy on a team--mutual respect is not a guarantee; don't take things on face value--demand proof or data to support reporting of team members; manage by focusing on each day's top three priorities vs. each day's interruptions; hold commitments sacred; the grass is not greener elsewhere--problems will crop up in any situation; the project manager should shape project culture rather than relying on management to do so.
