Project Management Institute

Project Troubleshooting and Recovery Simulation Lab with Lawrence Suda - CANCELLED


Topics: Leadership Development | Decision Making Techniques | Leading Project Teams

This is an immersive, engaging "Hands On" team-based computer simulation driven seminar on implementing a recovery plan for troubled projects. In this seminar, you are the recovery team and will take over a troubled project and discuss successful techniques for assessing the status of the project, determining whether recovery is possible and be in charge of turning the project around. You will practice how to implement a recovery plan and how to conduct the recovery. As you take charge of the recovery of this troubled project, you will need to treat the recovery plan like a project in itself.

As with any project, a realistic plan before project recovery re-launch can help to ensure a successful outcome. Therefore, as part of the recovery team, you will need to revise the plan to ensure a successful final deliverable—project success. The main objective of the recovery plan is to establish a road map that will assist the team in putting the project back on track. During the planning and executing stages of this computer simulated project, your recovery team will also need to build the confidence and morale with the original simulation customer and project team as well as other stakeholders. You will be challenged, and you will need to use all the project management skills, knowledge and tools you have learned throughout your distinguished career in project management.
