In a recent US survey, Robert Charette reported that Project Managers were struggling to cope with the changing Business environment. Challenges facing Project Managers include:
â€¢ Lack of budget or time to establish stable processes in highly compressed schedules
â€¢ The need for innovative new solutions to Business initiatives
â€¢ Insufficient planning
â€¢ Redundant work caused by sudden changes in priorities
â€¢ Too many dependencies with other projects
â€¢ Competition for resources with other projects
â€¢ Slow decision making
In this highly-provocative and challenging Masterclass, Extreme Project Management will be explored. The workshop will provide a forum for experienced Project Managers to come to grips with the new world of Project Management.
