Het is wat het is.

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde, Ierse schrijver, dichter en estheet.


Vaak lijken onervaren project managers “bang” om de waarheid te vertellen. Doorgaans onbewust, maar oh zo cruciaal. Ik heb het niet over flagrante leugens, maar het verzwijgen van de correcte status van een project. Het lijkt wel alsof een project dat momenteel minder goed loopt, verzwegen moet worden. Of erger, opgehemeld en verdoezeld worden.

Waarom ontstaan deze problemen eigenlijk?

  • De project manager koestert ten allen tijde de hoop dat er magischer wijze extra budget en/of tijd uit de kast zal komen … . Naïef!
  • De project manager heeft schrik voor zijn eigen job als het project misloopt (wat denk je dat er zal gebeuren als de waarheid ooit aan het licht komt?)
  • De project manager is zijn voeling met het project kwijt, en kent de status eigenlijk niet (meer). Tijd voor actie!

Een cruciale eigenschap voor een volwassen, doorwinterde project manager? De mindset “It is what it is“.
Als project manager ben je de brug tussen verschillende stakeholders en behoud je ten allen tijde de vinger aan de pols. Jij bent dé expert met de meeste en correctste informatie over het project. 90% van je tijd gaat naar communicatie. Communiceer de waarheid, wat je gesprekspartner moet horen, niet wat hij wil horen.

Breng het slechte nieuws, én biedt ondertussen de nodige opties om hiermee om te gaan.

  11. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be
    running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to
    do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many

  12. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your site.
    It looks like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me
    know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a
    issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

  13. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who was conducting a little homework on this.
    And he actually bought me breakfast simply because I found it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this issue here on your blog.

    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

    instead of that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read.
    I will certainly be back.
