Where are your project saboteurs? webinar

00

Starting 02 March 2020 12:30 through to 02 March 2020 13:30

Good projects intentionally gone bad is a reality in every business. Every management project has opponents who try to manipulate it for their own gain, and they are frequently successful. This is often denied or hidden and PMOs need to learn how to deal with this. 
 

In 2017, only 29% of software development projects were considered to be successful, meaning that these projects delivered on time, on budget, with a satisfactory result. 52% of the projects were listed with the qualification "challenged" and 19% failed completely (Standish Group Chaos Report 2017). With approximately $665 billion spent worldwide on IT projects alone, this means that $126 billion goes down the drain each year due to project failure.

People adjust the truth to suit themselves and thus serve their own interests: more power, more income, more respect. Based on one’s own interest, matters are portrayed in a better light and budgets are intentionally drawn up incorrectly. All of this is done with the express aim of influencing decision-making. 

Yet little attention has been paid to the art of undermining and manipulating projects. With more knowledge of the motivation and methods of project saboteurs, it could be combatted by the PMO. Which can in turn lead to large savings and better project results.

This webinar provides an insight on the project saboteur and explores the tools necessary to manipulate a project successfully and professionally and how to counter all this.
