Eight things to remember before you make your next decision based on PMI


In project management we make decisions on a daily basis. Most are relatively unimportant; some are critical and will cause the project to be successful or to fail. To ensure we make rational, unbiased decisions, critical decision-making requires you to:

- Obtain complete and accurate data

- Exam your logic and your biases

- Examine your premises

- Be aware of your motivations

- Think through both short-term and long-term impacts

- Know your own limits (be humble)

- Check with others

- Be comfortable with resulting uncertainty
