SitePoint.com:
14 Ways to Be the World's Worst Web Project Manager
April 08, 2010 @ 08:37:39

On SitePoint.com today Chris Roane has posted some "anti-tips" on how you can become the worst web project manager you can be.

There are a great number of ways to manage website projects, but regardless of your management style, there are behaviors that you should learn to avoid as much as possible. Steering clear of these pitfalls will not only allow you to get through projects on time and on budget, but will leave a very good impression on your clients, and win you more work in the future.

Some of his suggestions include:

  • Don't Communicate Clearly with Your Clients
  • If You're Not Going to Meet a Deadline, Don't Tell the Client
  • Always Underestimate the Resources Needed for a Project
  • Never Admit to Making a Mistake
  • Spend Very Little Time Writing Emails
  • Come into Meetings Ill-prepared

These and the few others in the full list are a good start for someone that might think they know what they're doing when managing a web project (or someone that might have been doing it for a while and might need to reflect a little).
