Why lists? Here is a list of reasons for organizing this project management guide around lists:

  • Lists present alternative ways of doing things without suggesting that one is necessarily best. I don't believe project management is a science where there is a best way to do things. This gives you a way of survey ideas that I hope helps.
  • Lists are easier to manage in a wiki. Wikis lend themselves to lists and breakout lists.
  • Lists can be added to and rearranged while writing. And this is a dynamic document meant to be edited.
  • The most useful book I ever consulted when I was learning to teach was a book of lists for teachers. With every new challenge I could get a bunch of ideas without having to read through all the throat clearing. I'm hoping this works for project management.
  • Lists can be ignored.
