||David Po-Chedley, PMP, President, Cambridge
This presentation identified ways project
leaders can remove barriers to individual and team accomplishment.
The number one barrier is lack of management support or buy-in. This
is critical in times of changing priorities. David revealed the leadership
practices that tend to lose management support and the practices that help
gain management support. Finally, participants were challenged to
apply some of the ideas when they return to the office.
This sessionwas very interactive, fun and
productive. It introduced six “No-Bull” practices that project leaders
can utilize to attract management’s attention and to gain management support.
At the conclusion, attendees walked away with practical tips for navigating
the politics and people issues that challenge many projects.
