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 :)
