Summary: Have you ever been involved in a project where the goals were unclear or impossible, the specs kept changing, or resources were given then taken away? Much of what affects a project cannot be helped, but there are many obstacles to productivity and success that can be prevented, anticipated, or eliminated. Everybody knows how much poor communication can cost in time, resources, customer satisfaction and team morale. But knowing all this doesn’t always ensure that people do communicate or check out assumptions, or even that they have the skills and framework within which to do so.
Using a mix of presentation, group interaction, experiential exercises, and real-world application to your own projects, this powerful 2-day course gives you and your team the common framework, skills, methodology and language to generate the accountability and superior results you know are possible. It gives you access to real data — not just opinions or “gut feelings” — that you can use in your interactions with project sponsors and customers to negotiate and set expectations for achievable results.
