Project Management Haiku

Share via email

Sponsor gives the task
With Impossible deadline
Insanity rules

Create Gantts to show
Path to achieving success
Thanks, M.S. Project

Kick-off not so good
Resources are all tied up
Late the day we start

Panic already
Project reviews are painful
But no help in sight

Schedule slipping right
Costs are increasing daily
Metrics board bright red

Spec is adjusted
To something realistic
Still feels like failure

Project completed
Delivered less than wanted
Still we celebrate

Sponsor is calling
Follow-on is imminent
Here we go again
