    I like the blog – thank you for psoting. But I have a question about pushing as mentioned in the Tao and in your post: if the PM does not push – how do you expedite when the schedule slips? Does not pushing mean that you just flow like water and try to see if there are alternatives to getting the work done within the same constraints – a change in words (which can result in a completely different atmosphere)?Thanks againTryllid wheel of fortune casino game online

    There is a concept in Taoism called Wu Wei – sometimes translated as action through inaction. I don’t think pushing is consistent with this concept. When we feel the need to push others, we have run out of ideas to reason with them.
    Team members on a project generally want the project to succeed as much as the PM. They need to understand what they specifically need to produce to support success and who is depending on them. They need to know that every team member is holding the other’s accountable, not just the PM. When the PM puts these things in place, pushing is not necessary (and doesn’t help anyway).
    The closest productive thing to pushing that PMs can do is clearly communicate a challenging and worthy project goal, and then follow through on disciplined CBPM practices.
