A Project Prayer

You are here:

One programme team I worked with had a daily stand-up meeting that acquired the nickname of “morning prayers”. It got me wondering – given the opportunity, what should a project or programme team pray for? Here’s what I came up with…

Our Sponsor, who art in the executive suite
Hallowed be thy business case.
Thy vision come
Thy mission be done
In actuals as it is in the forecast.
Give us this year our annual budget
And forgive us our delayed milestones,
As we forgive those who delay our inbound dependencies.
And lead us not into scope creep,
But deliver us from change requests.
For thine are the deliverables,
The outcomes and the benefits,
From Go Live into BAU,
Amen.
What would your project or programme team pray for? Let me know in the comments.
