What a week. Very busy trying to get the finishing touches complete on my current project.
One thing I have learnt over time while managing projects, and this project is no different, people get in the way, especially if you let them. Wants become NEEDS, and sometimes the practicalities of delivering these NEEDS add cost and time and no value. Be sure when you are specifying a project, you spec it and stick with it. Changes should be driven by the needs of the business, not the wants of the staff.
Otherwise the tail wags the dog!
