Topic:

Breaking the Unwritten rules of Project Management 

Abstract:

One thing we know for sure is that Change is inevitable …  In life … In business.  Procedures change.  Systems change.  The market changes.  Job descriptions change.  Your team changes.   The ability to adapt and adjust how you think and act can mean the difference between the success and failure of any project.
Here’s another thing we know:  Whenever there is change there is conflict.  Success demands that we break out of the mold of approaching and doing what we’ve always done to embrace the ideas of thinking and doing things in a fresh, new, more effective, productive manner.
There are seven unwritten rules that operate in every project – seven rules that, if not broken, will stand in the way of your team’s success. The Unwritten Rules of Momentum, Importance, Possibility, Capability, Responsibility, Growth, and Association affect how you act - and how you interact - within a team. Recognize the patterns of behavior that are holding you back and learn a 3-step process to change how you think and change how you live.  Get ready to laugh, be engaged, and positively become open-minded as you learn to Break the Unwritten Rules.
