Project Planning the Christmas Party…
It’s party time and everyone has a role to play. Can you spot yourself and your colleagues?
Co-ordinator – the reason why everyone knows what they’re doing and feels up to the job at hand.
Plant – the reason why you’re all going to some quirky location you’ve never heard of.
Monitor Evaluator – the reason why you’re not going to the Plant’s first suggestion.
Resource Investigator – the reason why everything is coming in under budget. Who knew they were owed so many favours?
Implementer – the reason why everyone will turn up at the same time, at the same venue, with their transport home already booked. Organised 23 diaries, opinions and sets of dietary requirements – with a little help from the Teamworker and the Specialist ofcourse!
Completer Finisher – the reason why everyone will be arriving at 7pm on the 22nd, not the 12th. You’d have thought the team would have learned their lesson after last year’s fiasco.
Teamworker – the reason there is still going to be a party after the ‘fall-out’ from the Plant and Monitor Evaluator during the ‘brain storming stage’. Is also handling the political ramifications of the Secret Santa with aplomb.
Specialist – the reason everyone found their way to the Plant’s off-piste restaurant. They love London so much, they spent their evenings learning ‘The Knowledge’. Handy.
Shaper – the reason the whole thing came off. There was just too much Christmas cheer at the planning meeting, and things were heading off-schedule. They all blamed the sherry trifle.
