You will be able to understand and manage the costs (budget/schedule over runs, stress, etc.) that go with miscommunication and wasted time on projects. You will walk away with your own personal application plan that includes the specific techniques you will apply to your projects after the session. Equally important, you'll get ideas and approaches for helping those on your project teams to be significantly more effective.
