- Realization: The prerequisite for recovering any project is having an executive commitment in the form of resources to fix the project.
- The four-step process to recover a project:
- Audit: Gathering unbiased data about the people and the project.
- Analysis: Analyzing the data to determine root causes of problems and developing the new project plan.
- Negotiation: Arriving at and selling an acceptable solution for both the supplier and the customer.
- Execution: Executing the plan and corrective actions.
- The major actions to keep projects from failing.
The goal of this presentation is to emphasize:
- The importance of human factors and culture in project failure
- That project managers need to be leaders not just of their project teams but also of their executives and customers
- The work one must do in dealing with the red project, the dynamics of the team, stakeholders, and executives.
- Leadership styles and techniques that are very important in each phase of the recovery
- The role of technology and methodology in creating issues
This presentation can be given as a keynote or a track session ranging from 60 to 90 minutes.
As an opening or closing keynote, at, say an auditing conference, each attendee can be provided a copy of Mr. Williams' book, Rescue the Problem Project, at an aggressively discounted rate. This brings more value to your attendees, increases attendance at your event, and creates more revenue for you.
For organizations, it can be further customized to focus on one specific project (time needs to be allotted for analysis) or issues that have already been identified in an organization. In addition, this can be coupled with other presentations, such as Visualizing Change or $305 Million Failure to add a taste of an audit to the audience's experience.
