Avoiding and/or Recovering "Challenged" Projects: Breathing Life Into a Potentially Dead Project
8:30am - 4:30pm
8 PDUs (4 Technical, 4 Leadership)

Are you the last one to know your project is in trouble? Do you find out too late to have an impact? This real-world based learning program will look at the critical “triggers” that should be carefully created and closely watched to determine when/if a project (and maybe you) is headed for the graveyard. Some projects are born dead and others die a long and painful death. Now you can learn how to avoid a project fatality by gathering, analyzing and projecting “status” indicators.


1. Introduction a Troubled Project
2. Establishing a Core Group of Project “Health” Indicators
3. How to Gather the Data That Tells The Truth
4. How to Communicate the Truth Effectively
5. Learning How to Force Timely Decisions
6. Knowing When to Suggest Pulling the Plug
7. Conducting the Vital Post Mortem--Preventative Medicine
8. Summary and Conclusion


Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

1. Recognize various signs, symptoms of troubled projects
2. Identify root causes of troubled projects
3. Assess troubled projects at each stage of the PM lifecycle
4. Develop and recommend options for recovery
5. Determine and execute methods for recovering troubled projects
6. Employ follow-up and monitoring processes to ensure recovery pans are effective
