Create Opportunity in Your Project NOW!

During this exceptionally uplifting and empowering treatment of Opportunity in projects, you will hear that there are plentiful Opportunities available in every project, if we know how to find them. Participants learn how numerous factors, including current project management practice and even the language we use to describe risk, actually prevent us from seeing Opportunity. Then attendees learn what they can do to make Opportunity more visible. Attendees work through a field-tested Seven Step approach to discover multiple Opportunities in their own projects. Topics include:
  • How opportunity enhances post-project Business Value
  • Two kinds of opportunity
  • Why we are blind to most opportunities
  • Introduction to more useful Risk Model
  • Vocabulary that supports constructive work with opportunity
  • Tools and techniques that support opportunity discovery
  • How stakeholder engagement can help surface opportunity
  • The Seven Step approach to identifying and leveraging opportunities
