When I’ve read the story of Vasa (the Swedish ship sunk on her maiden voyage) in details, I had an urge to write a piece – something like Vasa lessons for project management. It seemed like an interesting and original idea. Then I run Google search “Vasa lessons” and found that like about a thousand of very educated folks had this idea before me. So, instead of writing a zillionth version of Vasa’s project management lessons, I just refer to the best article on the subject Why The Vasa Sank: 10 Lessons Learned. If you are into project management, it a good thing to know and use as an example in presentation/discussions.
