VIRTUAL 'Talks' - May 2020

When It All Goes Sideways at the Last Minute: Planning for Murphy's Arrival                                      

Rebranded logo WineCountry 1 1


There is no such thing as bad luck, just bad preparation. When things go wrong around implementation time there are some simple things you can do in advance to make a recovery less desperate. The PMBOK would call it risk mitigation planning, but this talk will focus more on when the things happen that you never would have thought to put on your risk register. In general, there is very little in the PMBOK or PMP training classes on implementation disaster planning. After all, who would have to commit to a go-live without everything in perfect order and omniscient risk plans? We do. All the time.
