The Big Event: Project Management for Everyone Lessons Learned from the Three Little Pigs

Since childhood we’ve heard this story and been clearly taught that the two pigs who were lazy and cheap were wrong. The hero of the tale was the pig who took the time to plan and deliver a high quality brick house. As a result, it has influenced our project management beliefs as adults: We expect organizations managing projects to approach their work with the same methodical and ultimately successful set of steps that the wise pig used.
