Strong voice: A project Need: Need to stay focused and avoid drift

A great project needs a  strong voice. A great actor needs a powerful voice to become a star and create the impact. A strong voice to take care of solution, a constant motivator and a strong time keeper is a must need in projects.

Drift is bad. It loosens the elasticity. Non-elastic materials cant bind or group articles together. Maintaining right tension delivers the right solution.  To create tension, you need a strong voice.
  1. A voice that supersedes whims and fancies.
  2. A voice that can listen to users, customers, experts, your own common sense and state that again.
  3. A voice that stands tall among noise.
  4. In a project, escalations are noise. Suddenly you see mail trails from people not involved in project trying to gauge an analogy perspective. At times though required, but it deviates focus.
  5. A voice that rephrases every other person's voice into a single voice.
  6. A voice that calms and is quite when there are too many voices shriller.
  7. A voice that provides and sticks to a direction.
A great project needs a  strong voice. A great actor needs a powerful voice to become a star and create the impact. A weak dubbing artist for a great action starrer is a no-show. Similarly a strong personality with an equally impeccable voice gives the strength, confidence, comfort to all stakeholders involved.
