PHPMaster.com:
PHP Project Management
Mar 20, 2013 @ 15:18:41

On PHPMaster.com today there's a new post that takes a different approach to PHP development than some of their articles in the past. It comes at it from the project management side of things, talking more about how to run the project and less about the technology it involves.

Whether we like it or not, unless we are doing a hobby project just for our own amusement, even the most technical among us are really just project managers who can code. And, as a project manager, we can experience the heartbreak of project failure. [...] So what can you do as a technical project manager to minimize your chances of adding “leader of a failed project” to your resume? The answer is: pretty much what non-technical project leaders do.

He touches on a few key points that are important to any technology project, not just PHP ones - managing the expectations of the team and the business, using iterative processes and development and avoiding scope creep. He also drops in a bit about watching out for "weird stuff" that might be new or different to your group and their technology choices.
