Here's my idea of good project management:

Your initial steps should be spent with both project management and the end users of the program to determine what features and functionality the program should have. Be sure to get a complete description of everything required in the program, and make sure that all people involved (programmers, management, and end users) are on the same page.

Use modular programming, separating each function of your program into a self contained module, and bring each module to functionality in the program when it's completed. Continue talking with project management and the end users to make sure the project hasn't deviated from expectations.

When the program is finished, if you kept talking with project management and end users, your program should be exactly what was expected.

I've heard that some programmers don't like talking to, or can't relate well to end users. If that is the case, hire someone to be a mediator between the two groups (a geek/common translator if you will :)

I hope this helps you find your answers, I'd like to hear what the other Monks think about this, so I can improve upon my own ideas about project management.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
