Startup life is universal. Here’s how a project manager gets things done in China:
Customers demand: “We need a boat to cross the river.”
The product manager: “This is the solution we‘re offering”.
The chief architect drew up the blueprints for a solution.
The senior R&D manager broke down the blueprint and made plans.
The IT department predicts that the project will take at least one and a half years.
The boss: “Efficiency is everything! I’ll give you one month to launch it online, and you can update it later.”
The R&D team redesigned the plan and started coding immediately.
The test team initiated premier testing at once.
Then integration testing followed, progress developed in leaps and bounds.
The product went online.
Marketing: “Our project has successfully launched, and it is at the pinnacle of technological disruption! Look at our amazing innovation!”
