My first grasp of the toxicity level for a project template was many years ago, during a meeting (which, taking into account the fees of the participants, wasted more than 2000 Euros per hour), its topic being the template (with capital T) about to be used for gathering some trivial piece of information. Should we keep the X area? It doesn’t seem to apply in our case … I say we should; if it’s there, we might need it. Let’s leave it as it is and we’ll figure out what to write there. And so on and so forth, hour by hour. No wonder this type of experiences make the practitioners want to run away (when can we work if we sit in meetings all day long?) only when hearing about project management. The problem is that the opposite – anarchy – is just as bad as a strict setup.
