This Focused Performance Weblog started life as a "business management blog" containing links and commentary related primarily to organizational effectiveness with a "Theory of Constraints" perspective, but is in the process of evolving towards primary content on interactive and mobile marketing. Think of it as about Focusing marketing messages for enhanced Performance. If you are on an archive page, current postings are found here.

Before the Plan, The Cheeseburger -- Dale Emery points to a PMI San Diego Newsletter (pdf) that contains a good one-page piece by Payson Hall on the value of a Cheeseburger lunch between a project manager and the sponsor/customer of a project. It features a list of 20 questions that can serve as the core of the pre-planning plan -- the initiation of the project and the relationship between th PM and the customer. Dale adds one word to the last question that, in my opinion, brings significantly more value to it. [Later - Actually, he points out that Hall uses that word in his presentations on the subject.] A quickie look at a presentation version on the same subject can be found in this Google cache page.
