Communication impacts everything from schedule and cost, to scope, risk management and project survival.
This high energy training workshop introduces a ground-breaking approach to thinking about communication for projects. Successful project delivery is critical. High performing projects, successfully delivered, power efficient day-to-day operations and drive long term, strategic growth. High performing project environments deliver needed solutions that drive competitive advantage. However, even the most mature enterprise can fail to execute high performing projects, impacting operations, strategy and long-term success, particularly in competitive environments. This presentation is focused on the underlying principals at work within high performing projects and a revolutionary new way to understand and utilize the power of communication to ensure long-term success and the delivery of competitive advantage.
