Corrective Actions for Projects in Trouble

3 Days

Get an out-of-control project back on track for success!

What do you do when your project is over budget, behind schedule, not meeting the scope objectives, delivering products that fail to meet quality standards, and experiencing one crisis after another? This course focuses on how to see early signs that your project is in danger. Use techniques to identify the root cause of the problem, analyze the potential solutions, select the appropriate solution for your project, and implement the solution in an effective manner. Get your project back to plan through realistic analysis and control techniques. Learn how to halt a project at the right time. Communicate effectively with stakeholders to assure that all parties understand the problem, the solution, and the progress as you regain control.

Through our hands-on approach, you will work to troubleshoot and recover a project during the class. In three days, you will learn the process, work with the tools and templates, and practice the techniques that will enable you to quickly pull your own project back on track when you return to the workplace. This recovery strategy can be implemented on all projects, regardless of size and scope.

During this course, you will:

  • Become familiar with causes of project problems and their symptoms
