Day 66 - Now matter how you paint it...

Pin It
Hot on the heels of Day 65 where we uncovered the secrets of how to deliver IT programmes, we have another 15 hour day in the office. What to feast upon at 11.30 at night after a hard day at the work? Can't really eat much that late can you? Not an awful lot as it happens.
No matter how you paint it.....still a dog's dinner :)
Successful day otherwise!

Day 65 - This is how/where the magic happens...

Pin It
Delivery of large scale complex integration IT programmes costing hundreds of millions of pounds is actually quite a simple affair when broken down into simple elements. Here I share the secret toolkit that will help you succeed.
1) Coffee. Lots of it - morning, noon, afternoon, evening and night. Especially night. Who needs sleep nowadays?
2) Chocolate brownie, less than half eaten. This is just so people recognise that no, I haven't had breakfast yet due to 8am meetings, nor lunch due to back to back meetings, and likely won't have dinner until 10pm or after due to late evening meetings and getting home. So this is what I am surviving on (Awww..)
3) Water. Note level is at top of label after first gulp. See earlier post.
4) High level plan. Preferably in crayon and with really big boxes.
5) Plastic bag. For going incognito when you don't want to be recognised :)
