Let the feeling sink in. Your boss has just stopped you in the corridor and told you “I want you to follow-through on all documentation processes in the company”. Your heart sinks.
It’s been a number of hours since this incident and you are still trying to figure out how to fill in the documentation gap which needs bridging since you became PMO over 4 months ago. If it had gone to Product, this task would have come out of their budget or Marketing, but shouldn’t this be in R&D?
The project Gantt is empty, needless to say it’s going to take more than one person to fill.
Where do you start? If realizing your dream is what is at stake, it’s more than a project management goal; meaning, if you want to settle for less you’ll continue to drag your heels instead of going to the ‘go-to’ documentation people.
