Navigating Risk & Change Course Review

Led by 120VC founder, Jason Scott, this was an excellent course at not only teaching practical knowledge and cutting edge concepts from the ever evolving world of Project Management, but also at sharing wisdom on what it means to effectively lead people and why positional authority has little to do with it.

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!”

Join J. Scott, Founder @120VC and author of “The Irreverent Guide to Project Management, An Agile Approach to Enterprise Project Management,” and “It’s Never Just Business, It’s About People,” on a journey that will demystify Risk and Change. Learn several practical, proven techniques that will have your stakeholders feeling like “you have everything under control,” even if your Project is a veritable dumpster fire!

Learning Outcomes & Objectives:

  • Understanding the Project Leadership Value Proposition
  • Conquering 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.

I highly recommend 120VC. They are a firm with a strong methodology, a proven track record of success at Trader Joe’s Company, and a group with the requisite know-how and emotional intelligence to deliver mission critical projects.

The 120VC standard and training is in the top three of my all-time greatest contributors to my professional development. That puts it on par with my MBA, and above the PMP. [120] practices are the secret sauce of effective project, program and portfolio managers.
