Delivering Bad News in a Good Way
with Lee R. Lambert
8:30 - 4:30
8 PDUs (4 Leader, 2 Tech, 2 Strategic)

Join Lee to begin to understand the tools and techniques we use to convert mountains of project management data into useful information. This program emphasizes the preparation and delivery of the vital decision support information. Methods for developing and presenting the KEY outputs generated by using sound project management concepts to the organizational decision maker will be focus. Attendees will learn approaches and techniques for developing and presenting information in a way that the decision maker thoroughly understands what is being communicated and comprehends why it is important that the decisions are based upon the truth being provided by the PM process and the PM professional. After all, it is what it is!

The information coming out of the PM process is clearly valuable. The ability to determine what it says and to communicate it in an easy to understand, yet comprehensive, way to the decision maker is PRICELESS!

- Identifying the most Vital Information
