Overview

 

Concrete Principles for Planning and Controlling Projects

Projects fail to meet goals for a variety of reasons, and even the most experienced project managers can be caught off guard. This webcast introduces the five immutable principles that will help you increase the probability of project success and shows you how to apply them to a broad range of projects.

What You Will Learn

 

Your schedule is set, the budget determined, talent deployed, best practices adhered to every step of the way—and still the project fails. Often missing are these five principles:

  1. Communicating your project’s success factors (or ultimately being “Done”) in meaningful units of measure to your decision makers
  2. Planning to reach “Done” at the needed time for the required budget
  3. Planning for all the resources that must be in place to reach “Done”
  4. Identifying what impediments you will encounter along the way to “Done” and how you are going to handle them
  5. Knowing how you will measure progress to your plan, to ensure that you are “Done” on or before estimated completion date, at or below your planned budget, and that project outcomes meet the needs of your customer

These five immutable principles have tailorable practices and processes depending on project domains, each based on the principles. But these principles are immutable in that they are the foundation of success for all projects.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
