Project Management

Imagine a vast prairie. Full of steers, and cows, and they’re all going different directions! Running crazy in all different directions. And they’re big. Also, there are buffalo. Buffaloes? Anyway, multiple buffalo.

And there is one lone cowboy, on this vast prairie, with a lasso, making all these animals go the same direction.

I am the herder of those animals.

    As someone who is usually either the SME or Tech Lead on projects, this sounds very accurate. A good cowboy can make all the difference.
