This interview with Ron Black is based on chapters two and three of Leadership - The Everyday Superhero's Action Guide to Plan and Deliver High-Stakes Projects. Here is how Ron introduces the need for a project plan:
You're going to need a plan. No matter how urgent the moment may appear—stopping killer comet collisions, derailing evil tyrants from world domination, or dashing through security, grabbing a latte, and boarding your 5:31 AM flight in time to stow your roll-aboard in the last available space—you'll be more successful, more of the time, if you have a plan.
In the discussion, Ron and Cornelius introduce you to the "Super Power Points". These poignant one-liners (i.e. "To finish faster, start a little slower") at the end of each chapter summarizes the chapter's message. Each of the 15 points from two opening chapters are reviewd and Ron gives us his insights and recommendations that show why even the best project leader needs a plan.
