This pdf file requires Adobe reader & Flash to work.

There are 2 elements to this publication – the Message & the Medium. Feedback on either is welcome but don’t confuse the two.

1. The Message: The idea that there is a simpler way to carry out many projects of small to moderate size, making use of what is basically mind-mapping software to define the product set. Practically everything else should then follow. Its not a perfect method, but then no project management method can be as such methods try to reduce projects to a mechanistic process – which never works.

2. The Medium: The mode of presentation is explained in the file. Many people find a diagram easier to understand & I have attempted to use this idea to create a slightly different e-book.
