The Problem: Missed deadlines, budget overruns, adding just one little thing, too many distractions, lack of a clear project scope, spec creep, constant change in motion, priority shifting, the "waiting game," managing without line authority, and lack of accountability and ownership.
The Solution: This course providesparticipants a common methodology, terminology and tools that produce more efficient results and increase buy-in through improved visibility, reliability, and consistency.
The Goal: To use real data - not just opinions - in your interactions with project sponsors and customers, to negotiate and set expectations for achievable results.
The simulations and group activities provoked deep thought and exposed gaps in understanding/expectations/etc. Great class! Xilinx, Bus. Systems Analyst
