Project Management Best Practices


On Demand Webinar – 50% Discount

Despite decades of research confirming common causes of project failure, 50-70% of projects still fail, depending on the surveys you examine.   According to the Project Management Institute and others, 10% or more of every project dollar is wasted at a rate of $1m every ten seconds.  Until organizations value project management and adopt a continuous improvement mindset, this problem will not go away.  This presentation examines project management best practices to avoid the top causes of project failure.  Adopting or strengthening these practices will improve project success over time. This workshop is critical for senior executives, managers, PMO leaders, and project managers seeking to enhance business and project success.
