Workshop |The Art of Navigating Risk and Change

Leadership

Topic Summary:

If Projects always went according to plan, Project Leaders would have nothing to do. They would be able to lead projects forward in two hours per week. At team check ins, members would give universal thumbs-ups, and Project Leaders would publish status reports with nothing but good news.

Since that never happens, it’s time to admit; "RISKS & ISSUES ARE NOT JUST FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS" Projects rarely go according to plan, that’s why the world needs Project Leaders. They spend the vast majority of their 40-hour work weeks navigating Risk and Change to #GSD. The ability to successfully Conquer Risk and Change has become the emblem of a modern Project Leader. Yet when asked how well their organizations navigate Project Risk and Change, CEOs almost unanimous answer; "Poorly!"

Learning Outcomes & Objectives:

  • Understand the Project Leadership Value Proposition
  • Conquer the 3 Different Types of Risks: Potential, Actual & Imminent
  • Learn Why Nobody is Actually Managing to the Critical Path & How to Correct It
  • Learn How to Eliminate Actual and Imminent Risk by Managing to the Critical Path
  • Practice the Concept of Project Team Demand Management – The Missing Half of Project Success
  • Master Change by Not Trying to Manage It
  • Experience the transformative power of #GSD
