Topic: 
When you know your project is failing, what do you do?

Tools and techniques for project recovery -

Have you ever run a project during which you realize “We are just not making our deliverables as per schedule and scope”? Management support is there. The team is working really hard. They are addressing issues and staying late and over weekends. You’ve tried changes in approach; you’ve reallocated tasks. Still, the work is not getting completed. The team’s morale is becoming low. You realize that your project is failing. What should you do?

During this meeting we will explore what it means to be in “failure mode”, how to recognize the signs and how to put some processes and tools in place to put your project back on target. Through small group exercises we will explore the root cause of project failure and use some analytical tools to help understand the remedies and guide the recovery.
