A new day with a new Project. A series of thoughts and questions arise – What is the scope, Is it a technical project, how long is the schedule, what are the technologies involved, Am I learning something new?
Mostly these questions are left unanswered during the entire life-cycle of the Project. Various standards are identified to handle the trauma in a much simpler way. Some of them are MCSE, PMP, CAPM, PRINCE certifications and many more. Are these the ideologies challenging our capability to handle common sense?
