Driving to a Schedule and Minimizing Accidents Along the Way



We've all been there... your project is under a very tight deadline and you, as the Project Manager, are responsible for hitting that schedule.  How do you keep your stakeholders and team accountable? How do you motivate your team? How do you stay within budget? These are just a few of the tough questions we ask ourselves on every project, and they become critical when you are driving a project to an unbudging, tight schedule.  

This presentation will give you tangible takeaways that can improve any project, especially those that are under intense schedule pressure. 

At the end of this presentation, you will: 

  • Have tips to hold your stakeholders and team to deadlines
  • Learn communication strategies to increase transparency in key decisions
  • Be able to identify signs that your project is going "off the road" earlier
  • Take away some of the "fear" that comes with tight timelines
