Workshop – Navigating Risk and Change w/ PMI Portland
When asked most CEO say their teams aren't great at Navigating Risk and Change. Learn how...
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 workweeks 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!”
