Rescue My Project
Presented By: Brian H. Munroe
A discussion amongst project professionals on our real world experiences with Troubled Projects and a methodology for effectively and efficiently planning and executing the entire project rescue process. Together we will discuss the Rescue My Project Methodology and its similarities and differences with other methods that are being used. As project professionals, we have often tried all the tricks and tips to bring a troubled project back on track.  However, as project complexity increases, so too does the root causes of the trouble and often a “back to basics” rescue approach needs to be initiated.  As organizations become more receptive to project managers looking for assistance, we need to develop the skills required to assist these same organizations in project recovery to avoid total failure.3
Learning Objectives
Any project at any organization with any team can fail. However, projects never go from being well managed, on-budget and on-schedule to outright failure overnight. There is always a transition period during which time the project is “troubled”. It is during this time that a window of opportunity exists in which the project can potentially be rescued, and is likely the last chance to save the project.
This presentation is for project managers, project sponsors and other project team members who want to understand why projects fail, become familiar with warning signs that a project is in trouble, trigger events and impediments to declaring trouble and be introduced to a methodology to effectively and efficiently rescue projects that are in trouble.
