Kick Off – Coaching Case Study with Rob Atkinson

I just wanted to announce the I am kicking off a new case study in the form of coaching.

This coaching process should be very exciting because I will be working with someone with whom most readers should be familiar…

Rob Atkinson was featured as a success story – Read that story here.

rob-atkinsonRob has a pretty solid set of sites that he is working on. However, Rob mentioned to me that he can use help getting organized.

Luckily, a lot of project management is related to being organized.

In my day job, there are some rigid procedures in place, but for most of us working alone or with a very small team that rigidity isn’t necessary. (It honestly gets in the way at work, too!)

We can take some simple ideas from project management and apply them to what Rob is doing.

I see it playing out like this:

  1. Analyze what Rob wants to accomplish.
  2. Review what is happening now, i.e. document the current process.
  3. Formulate what the process should be.
  4. Look for areas to improve, change, or eliminate.
  5. Look for processes to streamline with templates.

The fact is that most of us don’t spend the time to think through the process. So you may spend time replanning over and over again when you should be executing your plan.

Most people find it helpful just by completing steps 1 & 2.

Stay tuned. There is more to come!

    It’ll be great to see how things work out.

    Doug, I have a question. I someone wanted to study project management (to the point they can be proficient enough to know but not expert level).

    What book/s, exercises or courses do you suggest going through based on your experience?
