Seasoned project manager Hassan Osman helps the reader of Project Kickoff: How to Run a Successful Project Kickoff Meeting in Easy Steps. The kickoff is to be prepared well. Draft the agenda, gather feedback about it and prepare your presentation. Don’t forget a dry-run and logistics. How the kickoff should be conducted is addressed in the second section. From welcome to Q&A and wrap-up. Sometimes the tips sound easy but may be forgotten in real-life too. That’s where this no-nonsense, short guide steps in. In the third section, the follow-up is dealt with. Distribute minutes or presentation and get the actions done.
For Hassan Osman this book is a mean to draw attention to further online resources and templates, as well as project management consultancy.
