Description

Establishing and following good processes, selecting and effectively using appropriate tools -- these are elements of project management for which best practices exist and can be followed. But all too often, the biggest barriers to successful project delivery lie in the collection of intangible factors that fall under the broad rubric of "politics". This session will address tactics for successfully achieving stakeholder buy-in, identifying and dealing with "challenging personalities", using transparency as a leverage point, identifying and mitigating failure points, and the nuances of control dynamics in project contexts. The session will strike a balance between framing statements from the facilitator and questions and input from participants.
