We’ve all been there – neck deep in a project burn­ing with fever and slid­ing off the rails. Blown bud­gets, steam­ing clients, a time­line doomed from the start. Join PM first respon­ders, Car­son and Rachel in the prover­bial oper­at­ing room for some inten­sive project first aid. We’ll lay the worst exam­ples on the table, assess their vitals, and with your help, devel­op an emer­gency care plan to bring our projects back from the dead. Be pre­pared to get your hands dirty. This will be a fast-paced, inten­sive work­shop filled with real-world case stud­ies, includ­ing past hor­ror sto­ries from our very own DPM speak­ers. Like a brain zap­ping game of Oper­a­tion, you’ll be in for one crazy ride.

You’ll learn:

  • How to assess your project’s vitals: the good, the bad, the just plain ugly
  • How to cre­ate an imme­di­ate care plan to stop the bleeding
  • How a pre­ven­tion plan can keep your ongo­ing projects bright eyed while keep­ing your new ones out of the O.R.
