Making things happen

In this chapter excerpt from his book, The Art of Project Management, Scott Berkun illustrates the value of prioritization and how it helps to "make things happen".

During one of my earlier projects, that I worked on, at Hewlett-Packard, we would sometimes find ourselves in a tough argument. Half the team felt strongly for option 1 and the other half liked option 2. Pawan gupta, who was managing the team, would walk into the discussion, ask a few questions, align the discussion in line with the current goals in hand, and quickly get everyone to agree on one option.
