Try answering the following questions:

  1. Why do we need to define the project and create a plan?
  2. Won’t we finish sooner if we just start the work?
  3. The plan says the project will take eight months … Why is it going to take so long?
  4. Why do we need to complete those ten tasks to get the project done?

If you find yourself tongue-tied, talking in circles, and unable to answer these questions (don’t worry, you’re not alone), it’s time to join the #GSD Talk led by J.Scott coming up on November 29th.

These questions are generally received defensively by Project Leaders. It’s easy to feel like the person asking the question is questioning our judgment or expertise. Our minds quickly respond with thoughts like … Who are you to question how I do my job? I’m the Project Leadership Professional!

 

Not only will you learn how to actually answer the above questions, you’ll also learn how to:

  • Define and scope a project that enables you to “Communicate to Lead!”
  • Learn how to use Assumptions, Risk, and Constraints to eliminate all avoidable blockers.
  • How to build a defensible Work Plan that positions you as a leader as opposed to a “note-taker.”
