About the Webinar

Projects are the mechanism to realize business strategy, create competitive advantage, and achieve organizational transformation. Important stuff, but, most often, projects are being done in addition to ongoing business operations with constrained resources. Therefore, success is dependent on getting the right resources, spending your budget wisely, and keeping people focused and motivated to execute. Warning signs that a project is headed to failure include missed deadlines, confusion, conflict, and churn. All this can contribute to project manager and team burnout. Effective project managers look for these early warning signs of failure and burnout so they can take corrective actions; but, more importantly, they proactively work to avoid them.

In this webinar you will learn tips and techniques to:

- Cultivate a healthy environment for your project, your team, and yourself.

- Create best practices you can rely on to drive the project forward.

- Leverage relationships to support and motivate.
