Project Management Lessons from The Washington Monument in Washington D.C.

Filed under Lessons Learned | Posted by PMStudent

Behind every historic monument and building is a great story and lessons to be learned about project management.

Dave Garrett from inspired me to record this video blog from the base of the Washington Monument after he told me a bit about the history over dinner and drinks the other night.? I am here for the 2010 PMI North America Global Congress and went for some sight-seeing and a break from the event.

In this video, I point out some relevant pieces of the monument’s history that illustrate the importance of proper funding and chartering of projects, stakeholder management, and risk management.
