Recovering Troubled Projects

Despite our best intentions, many of the projects that organizations undertake either don’t achieve their intended business results or end in complete failure.  Most seasoned project managers have had their share of experiences with difficult or troubled projects and unless they are careful, they will encounter more.

This workshop does not focus on “failed” projects but rather on those projects which without appropriate intervention would be headed for failure. Failed projects are those beyond help and which should be terminated. Here we focus on projects that are salvageable. It is an exercise-driven, no-nonsense, professional practice-focused workshop positioning the participant to immediately apply the tools and lessons learned in the classroom.

The workshop employs the use of both illustrative and practical/working case studies. Illustrative case studies will examine insights from real-world troubled projects. Participants will be asked to bring descriptions of their own examples of troubled projects on which they’re currently working or on which they have worked in the past. A number of these will be used as the basis for the practical/working case studies.

The approach builds on and complements the disciplines addressed in Project Management Institute’s PMBOK® Guide and also addresses issues that arise when managing projects in a complex environment.
