If you’re a project manager who is in the trenches every day, sooner or later you’ll be staring into the face of a troubled project. The project may be your own or may be one you’ve inherited. Knowing what to do when the time comes will be critical to your success. You’ll need to take action immediately – with speed, accuracy, power, balance and focus. You’ll have little time to think about an approach or polish your skills.

Rapid Assessment and Recovery of Troubled Projects demonstrates a proven process to project recovery. You’ll get everything you need (process, tools, techniques) to perform a rapid assessment of a project in trouble, develop a recovery plan and manage the transition to stabilisation.

Active participation in the case study, designed to simulate the environment and feel of an actual troubled project, will enable you to build your skills in a meaningful way. This course is a must for experienced project managers who need to know what to do when the chips are down.

Reminder: Participants should have a thorough understanding of scheduling and cost control and risk management before taking this course.
