The Project Lifecycle In Pictures (Sarcasm)


September 7, 2011 by rkelly976

As many of you know, my post yesterday was an attempt to explain the project lifecycle without the use of words…a picture blog.  I was very happy at the response and feedback, but there were a number of you that thought it was going to be a more humorous/sarcastic take on it.  Always eager to please and being bilingual (English and Sarcasm) I have provided that version below.  Enjoy.

I would love to hear your captions for each step…

Idea...kind of? One of?

Market Reseach

Smoke and Mirrors...I mean business case

Executive Support




Risk & Change Management

Quality Assurance

Executive Sign-Off



Lessons Learned? I'm Out Of Here!

Archive? Aren't We Going Green?
