Webinar on Project Management - Auditing Problem Projects
Every project undertaken is not a guaranteed success; there are many things that can and do go wrong. Overly optimistic budgets or underfunded projects can result in shortcuts or unrealistic pressures on those working on the project. Staff or resources lacking the skills to work on the project see the assignment as a fast track to promotion and may not be willing to admit they can not handle the project, projects escalated to be done quickly may result in shoddy workmanship, resources pulling on time constraints can stretch employees to thin, opposition may even exist that is looking to have the project fail - yes sabotage is more common than many will admit to.
Why should you Attend:
Projects are central to the success of organizations. From meeting new regulations, developing new products, entering new markets, downsizing, implementing an Enterprise Resource Planning system are all projects. Any one of these can bring significant benefits: the downside is they may bring an organization to it's knees if they fail.
Auditors need to know what makes a project a success and understand the project management process. Equally, an awareness of common pitfalls is essential to spot problem projects. Spotting issues at an early stage is critical to ensure project success and avoid costly failure. Audit must be able to identify root causes of issues and make positive recommendations to help mitigate risks. Also, audit can help to ensure management and key stakeholders are aware of issues and can take decisions based on accurate information.
