You couldn’t help but notice the flag of Great Britain as the Olympics progresses across the country. The flag it self is known as the Union Jack and is a combination of the flags of England, Scotland and Ireland – in essence a Union of parts that form a Great Britain.
It reminded me of working on projects and trying to combine parts of what you know works best on projects to deliver a successful result. Right now I am looking at my latest project and wondering is there enough time be divided up between project planning, issue management, communication and team building activities. These are just a few of the many parts of the project but which are at the forefront of what I see as being required to form a successful union of parts to deliver the end result. Spending time to review your project parts and ensure they are in union pays dividends as any one part is important but combined and in union they form a better picture and result.
