Here’s a question for all the program managers out there. When you’re developing a new system, is the focus on making sure we “do it right” or “get it right”?
Doing it right is all about compliance with the proscribed processes and best practices. Getting it right is all about delivering the product.
I contend it’s more important to GET it right than to DO it right.
(I found the phrases in an article by Roger Atkinson titled Project Management: cost, time and quality, two best guesses and a phenomenon, published in the 1999 International Journal of Project Management, vol 17, No 6)
