A02-PM Appetizer: Dealing with Project “Yellow Lights”
Today we have another PM Happy Hour Appetizer episode!
What’s an appetizer?
These are short format episodes (10- 15 minutes) in between our main shows where we hit on short, informative topics. These topics are too small to fill up a full show, or we want to see if there is enough interest from you, our PM Happy Hour listeners , to turn them into full episodes. So, if you hear an Appetizer and think, “they should make a whole meal out of that!” please let us know and we’ll be happy to do that.
We all run into those little “Yellow Lights” on projects ? those moments when you think, “wait a minute? that’s not right.” All too often, we “floor it” and try to get through the light before it gets red – only to end up in a head-on collision!
Today, we take a lesson from Mahan Khalsa’s great book, “Let’s Get Real or Let’s Not Play” for how to handle these critical moments when we realize that something is definitely not right.
Props to Mr. Mahan Khalsa for his great book!
