Managing Troubled Projects

A Practical Approach for Rapid Assessment and Recovery of Troubled Projects

International statistics show that 2/3 of all projects face various levels of trouble.

The good news is that the same statistics show that 75% of all troubled projects can be recovered - this is almost half of all of our projects, conditioned we attempt to recover them properly.

This is why the knowledge and process in this course is very vital, for all types of projects.

Workshop Overview

This workshop is meant for those who are assigned to projects in serious trouble or which have major issues related to time, scope, cost, etc. This workshop focuses on helping project managers rapidly identify and correct major problems accruing during project activities. While the first and most important order of business is to prevent problems, we know that if you are in trouble RIGHT NOW, the first thing you want to know is how to recover. This workshop, therefore, focuses on the best practices for developing, executing and sustaining a recovery plan to get the project back on track and improve its indicators.
