“Assumption is the mother of all f***-ups.” [Everett McGill when playing Marcus Penn]


Project management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources so that a project is completed within defined cost, quality, scope & time constraints. A project is a temporary and one-time undertaking to create a product or service which provides beneficial change or added value.

The responsible person to organize and to control a project is called project manager. There are some organizations which train necessary and useful project management skills. See, for example (external link!):

“The most successful people are those who are good at plan B.” [James Yorke]

Logfiles support a project manager at his day-to-day routine to coordinate and to control a project:

Daily Log - diary to record actions or significant events not stored elsewhere

Issue Log - record and track project issues

Lessons Learned Log - store good and bad experience with methods and products

Quality Log - record checks and sign-offs of quality evaluations

Risk Log - record and monitor identified project risks
