No sooner do you say the word "plan," when something else has changed.  Instead of managing priorities, you are prioritizing crises. Extreme project environments require a new mindset and a new project management model. 

In this entertaining and information-packed session, Doug and his drum will provide you with a leading edge, project management template for use in managing extreme projects.  His proven approach brings together the 5 Critical Factors for succeeding on extreme projects. From this presentation, you will: 

  • Learn why the traditional project management model is now backfiring and making things worse in environments that feature high speed, high change and high uncertainty 
  • Learn why it’s necessary to adopt a Quantum view of the world and discard the old Newtonian mindset 
  • Take a tour of the 5 Critical Success Factors that form the foundation of eXtreme Project Management™ 
Doug’s work has earned him international recognition as a consultant, motivational keynote speaker, trainer, facilitator and columnist.  He works with clients to produce immediate and repeatable results by applying proven practices in grass-roots organizational change, team leadership, plain-english project management and self-mastery. His approach to project management and self-mastery is featured as Chapter 7 in the landmark book entitled 'The World Class Project Manager:  A professional development guide'. 

Doug requested not to put his vu-graphs on-line.

Additional details will be posted regarding the Presidents awards, pictures, and comments form Doug's presentation.
