DPM Expert Series: Dealing with Externally-Driven Changes
As PMs, we do our best to be updated on all matters related to the project. But there are conversations and decisions being made that are simply out of our control. They occur without our knowledge or input, but inevitably impact our ability to deliver on time, on budget and within scope. And it’s frustrating as all hell.
So what can you do about it? The DPM, along with a panel of Experts will be discussing strategies to approach and overcome these challenging situations to set you up for the best chance of success.
Scenarios we covered in this session
- Your leadership team tells you to start a project before you’re truly ready. What do you do?
- A person on your team is underperforming. You aren’t their supervisor. What do you do?
- A client is adamant about adding deliverables to your project. You know they are out of scope and will derail the timeline. Leadership says to make it happen to keep them happy. What do you do?
- A client rotated off your project and the new client isn’t as excited about the work. What do you do?
