The Ultimate Guide to Project Management
It started as an idea, that next amazing thing your team is going to do. Perhaps you’ll build the next big thing, add a feature your users have been waiting for, or write that book you’ve been thinking about for years. Perhaps you’ll put a man on Mars, or land a rocket on a boat, or reinvent the car.
Perhaps. But first, you’ll need a plan.
Plans map your path, list what it takes to get there, and what needs done first. They’re the essential ingredient to making sure your rocket has enough fuel, that you have a team ready to launch it, and that you actually build the rocket in the first place.

You’re ready to launch that rocket, but first, it’s back to the basics.
