The art of project planning by the Underpants Gnomes
Inspiration comes in various forms. And after looking a Mattan Griffel’s presentation on Slideshare about growth hacking, that has some great stuff that I can use with online communities. It reminded me of the underpants gnomes
One of the things that I have noticed over a few years is the similarities between project planning and planning for communities of practice.
The better the plan, the clearer the purpose and realistic the objectives are the more chance you have of being successful.
But every now and then this does not happen. You may have enthusiastic people that want to push forwards. But unless you know where you are going and what you are trying to do. It can lead to issues.
The underpants gnomes where enthusiastic but this was their plan.
Phase 1: Collect underpants
Phase 2: ?
Phase 3: Profit
Can you see where they need some help?
