During a crisis, your organization needs to move fast and as a project manager, it might feel like you need to short cut the fundamental project management techniques which have served you and your projects so well in the past. During our webinar, we will review five often overlooked but essential project manager responses critical to any project operating within a crisis.
Review our free webinar to learn tips on how to manage yourself and your project through the crisis. You will learn the importance of these five best practices:
- Plan ahead and add the crisis to your risk register
- When you are developing your contingency plans, ensure that they are aligned with your organization and its objectives.
- Benchmark with others and remember critical stakeholders and partners in your planning. Often forgotten - your procurement commitments.
- Communicate to your people, your team, your stakeholders, your community. Remember: communication is a two-way street!
- Hold regular review cycles – during the crisis and after.
