The backbone function

In the same way that the drummer in a music group performs the function of containing all the other instruments, by keeping the tempo and rhythm even if there are periods of silence in the song, the project manager is the one that ultimately contains the project, via an intuitive understanding of the goals, delimiters, responsibilities, etc.

This dawned on me this evening, as we were fine-tuning our version of Bob Dylan’s “Mighty Quinn” in the band.
