AACE SoCal Section - December Virtual  Meeting

Turning Around Problem Projects

Friday, December 14th , 2018 Time 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Speaker: Joseph A. Lukas, PE CCP   Vice-President, PMCentersUSA

Considerable effort is usually spent on the development and implementation of project management plans to ensure that projects are completed successfully. However, personnel on most projects will eventually be faced with events that result in a troubled or ‘problem’ project—one that is in jeopardy of not meeting the project objectives. This presentation addresses the types of problem projects that can occur, and provides suggestions on how to identify the early symptoms of problem projects. Authoritative, competitive and collaborative problem solving strategies will be discussed, including the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. A proven five-step systematic problem resolution technique will be described in detail, along with a creative approach to problem solving. Finally, advice on how to make problem projects less likely to occur will be reviewed. This presentation will help prepare you to more effectively deal with a problem project.
