Managing projects in a multitasking environment

In many organisations, the IT group is involved in day-to-day operations as well as working on projects. And not just on one project, they are often involved in multiple projects all in different phases at the same time. From the team standpoint, there is a never ending stream of projects they have to work on. From the standpoint of the executives, there is a high rate of failure in IT projects and the ones that are completed rarely do so in the time expected. This too-common situation is a recipe for disaster. Team members are overworked and stressed as they switch from one project to another and back to operations while projects flounder. Priorities keep changing from week to week and the team members work on whatever the last person to stop by their desk asked them to work on. Everybody is so busy working on current projects that there is no time to adequately plan upcoming ones. This seminar will provide an approach to resolve these problems, one that can be implemented without major organizational change
