Advance at your own peril: Tips to prevent nightmare projects

Presenter: stephenpashby

Every project has a degree of risk, but most projects can be completed successfully with sufficient forethought, care, and process. We will share several of our hard-won lessons that have helped us turn potential disaster projects into successes (and we will share a few war stories along the way).

We will share:

  1. How and when to discuss and document project goals
  2. How to limit risk due to unknowns by making and documenting assumptions
  3. Developing a realistic schedule that works for all stakeholders
  4. How to manage stakeholder sign-off and project changes
  5. How to have candid conversations about project risks and contingencies
