Rule #1: Survive

Everybody is talking a lot about the survival training on topics related to the project management, but why? is it really so necessary to take any kind of training? you might say, “of course”, and you’ll be right, because it is good to have a direction before starting a project, it helps us to avoid losing tons of money or getting fire, it is a reality that from 300,000 software projects in the USA, between  1/3 and 2/3 of those projects will exceed their schedule and budget targets before they are delivered (McConnell, S. 1997). So yes, it is an importantopic indeed, and in software community, the users might complain a lot about the release dates and functionalities of the software, but the failure is always (or most of the times) avoidable with the right planning, anyways the manager must be in charge of the continuity of the project and prevent the cancelation from the client. This course will be like going to a camp, but, a Project Survival Training Camp. Before starting anything, the temas must follow the principal rules, or in this case, the rights (just like people, projects tent to have right and obligations too), and some rights must be satisfied in order to continue with an effective and well focus project and the rights must be required for everybody that works on the project without discrimination, having a productive environment is one of them, making everybody follow the rights will made the chances of survival bigger.
