Keeping a project relevant and on track can involve unconventional thinking, tools, and techniques. If the project or business initiative you are managing is experiencing bottlenecks, issues, or inertia, this workshop may be for you.

Through facilitated discussion and exercises, and peer-to-peer learning, this one-day workshop aims to give you a set of tools, techniques and ideas to guide you forward with your project. All aspects of a project are up for discussion and debate in this confidential session, depending on what is important to you and your project. These aspects include but are not limited to: project scoping; scheduling and planning; benefits management; risk identification and analysis; issues management; influencing and enacting change; stakeholder engagement. With a maximum of 8 participants, this workshop is ideal for anyone with a project in flight. The workshop is designed to maximise participation and personal attention to ensure that you walk away with actions that can be readily applied to your workplace project and increase its chances of success.
