National Poetry Day: Haiku for Project Managers

It’s National Poetry Day! The theme this year is Light, so, shedding some light on what it’s like to be a project manager I’m delighted to share three haiku by Robert Prol.

This one is about project issues.

Project Management Haiku Robert Prol

This one talks perfectly about the many meetings you may find yourself in as a project manager.


Finally, this one is my favourite on the theme of the triple constraint.

Find more of Robert’s poetry on LinkedIn and his blog, Haiku for Project Managers.

    Thanks for posting these! I find the “cheeky” ones get the most interest from readers, but make me the most uncomfortable posting.
