Method of Operation. A very detailed task list that companies prepare to make a change to their systems. When, who does what, in what order, who wait for who, who gets notified when, what are steps. For complex systems sometimes takes weeks and countless meetings to prepare. Never seen it done in a application -- always stupid Excel or Word, with all the manual work involved any time you need to insert a step (recalculate start times) or send a report during the implementation.
"Let's do a task list!" is a manifestation of "I do not really know what to do with my skills". Skills are apparently there, but the knowledge of world pains is lacking. And the skills should be applied to pains, not to nice-to-haves.
